These services are provided by Public Management staff and University professors. This unit is designated as the sponsoring agency for the Comprehensive Public Training Program (CPTP), a training and educational program authorized by the 1979 Louisiana Legislature.

Requirements for Teacher Certification in Career and Technical Education Areas

The Louisiana teacher certification path prepares a student for certification in one of the two career and technical education areas: agricultural education (through the College of Agriculture) and business education. Although most of these graduates enter the teaching profession, experience has demonstrated that people who hold a state teaching certificate find employment in a wide variety of other related professions.
