Teacher Preparation students should complete the CBEST test during their time here at Mt. SAC. Once passed, the certification is good for life.
The 4-hour Basic Skills test covers reading comprehension, math and essay writing. TPI recommends that students who have passed English 1A and Math 71 are prepared to pass this test.
TPI urges all future teachers to take the CBEST before transferring to a 4-year college.
Active TPI Members who attend the full workshop and pass the CBEST can apply for a reimbursement from TPI for the test fee ($41).
Next CBEST Workshop will be in May 2015. More details to follow.
