Certification Information

Common Certification Questions

Salary depends on a corps member's school and grade-level assignment. The majority of placements have salaries that fall in the $28,000 - $34,000 range.

Most corps members will require a car to get to their placement school. However, our public transportation can be used for personal use to get downtown, though it's use isn't common.

Certification can be obtained in two years through one of our partner universities.

Certification type - most corps members will be in the latter part of the range due to certification requirements, especially testing. If they are already Arizona certified or certified in another state, the certification costs will be less.
