Teacher Preparation Institute

CBEST & CSET Test Dates & Locations

Free CBEST Test Preparation Workshop for active TPI Students, TPI Alumni, Current Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Fullerton & La Verne University Students.

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.

*Meeting time-frame is dependent on instructor, therefore students need to keep a 4-8p time-frame open in their schedule for these workshops.

What separates TPI's CSET workshop from others?

  • Workshop is free. Other colleges charge $150 and up for a full day workshop.
  • Teacher Prep instructors go over subject matter of CSET, not just test taking strategies, so that you will be better prepared to take the test.

Exclusive offer for active TPI Members: attend all workshops, take the test, pass it, show TPI proof and get reimbursed for the test fee!
