National Board Certification Elective Course

The University of South Alabama is offering a new graduate-level elective course for National Board Certification support. Three years of teaching experience is required to register as a National Board candidate. However, teachers can enroll in this elective course at any time to prepare for the process. The course is three credit hours and split into two eight-week terms to provide ample time for students to be familiar with the process of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT).
