Mag aaral ka ng 6 months and then mag review ka kung gusto mo magkaroon ng lisensya sa pag tuturo. Bring your TOR na din kasi yun ang isa sa hihingin nila for evaluation po. I hope it helps.

  17. Hi there

    I took up BS Physical Therapy, then nakapag teach ako sa isang college dito Thailand while studying for M.Ed. in Educational Administration. Because hindi ako Educ. Grad., I was required to get noncredit Foundation courses prior to the required courses.

    Looking at the subjects required above, I have earned credits to most of them in my masteral studies. Can that be used as credits toward earning the 18 units for Profession Education degree and qualify to take LET?

    Thank you……….

    • I think meron tayong options same field tau… una you can take 18 units of Professional Education.. which accordingly madadagan next semester kasi mag babago ang curriculum kung matutuloy dadagdagan nila ng Practice Teaching baka magiging (30-36 units) PERO WALA PA FINAL SAY SI CHED,, pero kelangan din natin mag take ng NC 2-4 kung sa Senior High ang balak mo,, pede rin naman mag MASTER’S Degree ka para pasok sa University.. Kung hindi pede rin naman Tapusin mo nung CSS then take TM – Trainers Methodology,,

  20. graduate po ako ng B.S in AGRICULTURE ma method po sana ako… pagnatapos ko po ang method pwede po ba ako magtake ng LET? at ano pong specialization pwede sakin?

    tnx for your response?
