Teaching Refresher

Azusa Pacific University’s Clear Credential 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 teaching refresher 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 refresh 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. During the program, credential candidates are required to attend two campus meetings: an orientation at the beginning of the Clear Credential Induction program and a colloquium at the end. Candidates may enter the program during either the Fall I or Spring I session. For more information about the Clear Credential Induction program, contact:
