I am curious about alternative certification. I have a friend who is unable to afford two more years in college to receive his teaching certification. He cannot afford a 1 year internship with no pay. I have no advice for him because I am unsure of this process. Can you even get a teaching job without a certificate? I did not think that this was possible since I always have to send in a copy of mine for jobs. If you can get a job without a certificate and through this get teacher certification where are the ares that do this?
