Although a California teacher credential is not required for the PPS Credential, successful completion of the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) is a prerequisite to enter the program. Also, candidates for the PPS program must apply for a Certificate of Clearance and need evidence of a negative TB test dated within the past two years when they initially enroll in the program.
Applicants who already have a Master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution and who wish to receive a PPS Credential must complete the following CCTC-approved courses. The PPS credential requires a total of 30 units and 600 hours of fieldwork. Pupil Personnel Services credential candidates must ensure at least two-thirds of their fieldwork hours are completed in K–12 school settings. A minimum of 200 hours must be conducted in a high school or high school-to-college transition setting.
