Re: Experienced EFL Teacher looking for a quick US Cert

Oh yeah, I'm definitely satisfied with the Utah certification - and am so glad you recommended it! It was a leap to try for QTS, so I'm not disappointed, it's a good reality check. This is all I need for now, and I definitely haven't lost anything, so it's a great route for anyone needing certificat...

I wouldn't count on using the CT initial license to get QTS. I recently went through the steps to get a Utah level 1 license (their Academic Pathway to Teaching = Praxis content exam + fingerprints sent to the US + a few other little requirements), which took about 2 months and gave me a decent-look...

Re: Experienced EFL Teacher looking for a quick US Cert

I've gone through all the steps of the Utah APT (passed background check & Praxis II Elementary content knowledge, sent transcripts etc..) and am waiting for the licence to be issued. For anyone who's done this, how long did it take the USBE to issue it for you after they've received everything? It'...
