The experiences that I have had participating in the Web-Centric Alternative Certification Program are first class. There are several programs locally that I could have chosen to participate in, but what stood out with this one was the convenience of online classes, commitment from the staff in helping its participants succeed, technological advancement of the online format, and continued efforts by its directors to ensure that their 20+ years of teaching experience is used toward continued success even after you are hired by a district. Bob and Nancy teach you how to excel in all aspects of teaching, and go beyond the requirements necessary for their participants. If you want the convenience of online classes, personalized attention, and unparalleled mentoring throughout your certification process, you have found it with Web-Centric ACP.
For me, the best part about the Web-Centric program was the fact that all coursework could be completed online. I tried to find a certification program near my home, but there was nothing closer than an hour commute. On top of working and trying to make time for my family, there was no way I could handle that additional drive and time away from home. With Web-Centric classes being completely online, I was able to do all the work at my own pace from my home computer.
During my internship, I found the comments made by the Web-Centric supervisor who came to observe my classroom extremely helpful. It was nice to have the direction of a real person who came into my class, instead of listening to a lecture from a teacher in the comfort of their classroom.
