Purpose of the Program

The Alabama Technology Integration Coach Certification Program consists of a year long blended program of face-to-face and online coursework.  The coursework is based on the ISTE Standards for Coaches, with participants completing a showcase product throughout the program. The coursework is currently in development by the AETA Certification Program Committee.

The first cohort of ALTIC will begin with a meet and greet June 13 at 5:30PM at Ross Bridge following the AETA Summer Conference. 


Who can participate?

A successful candidate for the ALTIC Certification Program should currently serve the role of technology coach for a school or school system. All applications will be reviewed and candidates will be selected by the AETA Certification Program Committee. The ALPHA cohort of the ALTIC program has been selected. Additional cohorts will be announced soon.
