Become a Substitute Teacher
The CESA 7 Substitute Teacher Preparatory Program is a virtual experience designed to prepare participants to be effective substitute teachers. Our online program will provide complete flexibility so participants may complete the required coursework when it is most convenient. Through CESA 7, participants will receive access to the Master Teacher online learning platform to complete the Foundations of Effective Substitute Teacher Training courses. CESA 7 will also provide support and guidance with the Department of Public Instruction’s application process for the Substitute Teacher License.
"The curriculum portion of the CESA 7 substitute teacher training is fantastic. It should be the standard that all other parts of the state should try to replicate.”
