Certification-Only Options

Piedmont College has a proud history of preparing teachers to work in schools in northeast Georgia and beyond.  In addition to undergraduate and graduate degree programs, the School of Education has developed options for individuals seeking course work leading to teacher certification.  Candidates are usually individuals with a degree who do not wish to pursue another degree, but who desire to teach. 

Our certification-only options have been approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for initial teacher certification.  Candidates from other states may be eligible for certification under the Interstate Certification Compact.

Certification-only options are available on both the Demorest and Athens campuses, depending on the field of study.
