The TEACH-NOW group has paired with Arizona and Washington DC to offer a new program for educators to obtain a US teaching certification. Many US states have reciprocity, so a AZ or DC cert would allow a teacher to go to many other states in the US and, of course, overseas.

From the blurb:

The TEACH-NOW program provides a unique teaching model. Instead of enrolling in several different courses each semester, candidates complete a series of intense, comprehensive modules of different lengths, taken in sequence.  The program is project and activity-based, and through its collaborative learning model participant learning takes place in mandatory virtual class sessions with 10 -15 candidates in the learning cohort and the instructor.

Each module is divided into units, and each unit is one week long. Participants have to commit an average of 15-25 hours to the course each week, completing coursework, collaborative projects and clinical activities. The online platform provides a safe environment to practice what you have learned. Instructors provide encouraging feedback and support throughout the course. 

The program leads to a state teaching license and offers the following areas of teacher preparation:
