Tier 1: Certified Structured Literacy Teacher
To obtain certification, a candidate must pass the certification exam. In order to sit for the exam, a bachelor’s degree is required. The degree may be in a discipline other than education. No specific training is required to sit for the exam, although completion of a training program in structured literacy from a CERI-accredited university or independent teacher preparation program provides thorough preparation in the Knowledge and Practice Standards on which the exam is based.
