This curriculum, which is offered in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, is designed to prepare in-service teachers of career and technical education (industrial) subjects at the secondary, post-secondary, and 2-year college levels in public and private schools. Career and Technical Teacher Education courses may be taken on three levels: certification, undergraduate, and graduate. Persons who meet statutory requirements and who have at least two years of work experience beyond the learning period in a trade, technical, or other selected occupation may prepare for certification to teach occupational subjects or related classes in secondary schools in Pennsylvania.
