50 Hour Pre-Service Program

Monmouth University / Now Offered Completely Online

Cost: $500

You do not need to HOLD a Certificate of Eligibility (CE) to enroll in this course.

This course satisfies the New Jersey Department of Education requirement for those wishing to pursue certification through the Alternate Route process. This is a requirement to work in any New Jersey public or private school district. Teacher candidates will have the opportunity to take part in an online approach including hosted virtual sessions with an Adjunct Professor who is also an administrator in a local school district, to learn the basics needed to start the journey to becoming a teacher.  We will use Zoom for our virtual meetings. A teacher candidate may need a computer or a phone with a camera to access.

The requirements for this class is that one possesses a college degree and meets the state GPA requirements.  For someone who has graduated prior to September 1, 2016, this requirement is 2.75 or above; for anyone who graduated after September 1, 2016, the requirement is 3.0 or higher.

Topics that will be covered during the virtual learning sessions of this class include:

  • Classroom differentiation/ current strategies
  • Language and acronyms used in education
  • Lesson Planning Preparation
  • NJ Professional Teaching Standards
  • Special Education
  • Social-Emotional Learning
  • Teaching job support as an Alternate Route Candidate

For clinical observation hours teacher candidates will be provided with a video simulation of lessons that they will critique and identify specific strategies.  The final component will be the teacher candidates presenting a recorded lesson plan to their instructor and peers. Monmouth University is fully confident in our ability to provide you clinical observation hours through video simulation.

*If you took the 24-hour class prior to 2017, you would need to take the entire 50 hours. We do not offer a “bridge” option. This is due to the new requirements of the course including preparing and delivering lessons when the State changed the requirement to the 50 Hour model in 2017.  We have 50 Hour courses scheduled bi-monthly. Please see our schedule below.

CTE or P-3 Endorsement seekers ARE only ELIGIBLE for this course. Please consult the NJ PTP website to help you determine your program options beyond the 50.

Phase IThe Monmouth University Provisional Teacher Training Program’s mission is to be a regional leader in the preparation of highly competent, reflective teachers who have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to improve teaching and learning in a highly pluralistic democratic society.

The courses are set up in hybrid fashion and consist of both live and web classes. The web classes are modules that are assigned each weekend.

After the 50-hour course, the remaining 350-hours can be completed within two years.
The first option is the traditional AR route of formal instruction totaling 350-hours. The 350-hours of formal education, a 2-year program, is for that teacher candidate who holds a valid certificate of eligibility (CE), is hired as a teacher or maternity leave position and contracted by a school district to go Alternate Route. On this link scroll to Provisional Teacher Training Program – 350 Hours of Formal Instruction and apply in the link: https://www.monmouth.edu/school-of-education/departments/pttp/

Provisional Teacher Training Program – Masters in Education PTP

We also offer a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.) Provisional Teacher Program (PTP) Degree. This degree pathway is a 2-year tuition-based program and for those teacher candidates who hold a valid certificate of eligibility, are hired as a teacher or maternity leave position, and contracted by a school district to go Alternate Route. The option for this degree can be found on this link: www.monmouth.edu/graduate/master-in-education/

Master’s in Education (ESL) Endorsement Alternate Route CE/ TESOL Option: If you are interested in the ESL alternate route program you would begin by taking the 50-hour Pre-service course. After completing either the 18-credit ESL or TESOL endorsement, a student can add four classes, or 12 credits, to fulfill the M.Ed. PTP 30 degree requirement. This would settle your standard teaching certification as well as provide you the ESL teaching endowment.
