Troops To Teachers (TTT)

The Troops to Teachers (TTT) Program is a national program which provides support services to prepare individuals for a career in teaching. Soldiers with a baccalaureate degree or higher are eligible to begin the traditional teaching certification process, however, many Soldiers may also qualify to become a vocational/technical teacher. Soldiers need only the equivalent of one year of college courses (24 college credits) and six years of experience in a vocational or technical field to begin the certification process.
