Teacher Induction Program

Azusa Pacific University’s Induction Program comprises 12 units offered as four nine-week practicum courses completed in the participating teacher’s own classroom or through fieldwork. Candidates earn this credential in four, separate nine-week terms.

This program focuses on the complexity of teaching and learning in California classrooms, and is tailored to meet the needs of individual teachers, providing opportunities to review teaching practices, gain expert feedback, and critically reflect on their approach to the classroom.

  • Track A is for noncontracted teaching jobs.
  • Track B is for contracted teaching jobs.
  • Track C is for clearing both a general education and a special education credential.

All classes are offered online and include required synchronous sessions. During the program, candidates are required to attend one campus meeting: an orientation at the beginning of the Induction Program. Candidates may enter the program during either the Fall I or Spring I session. For more information about APU’s Induction Program, contact Mona Girgis at (626) 815-5465 or
