2) Hybrid (Academic Online + I-R ongoing or summer sessions)
3) Practicum phase for both models: weekend seminars
The candidate must complete all academic components and the teaching practicum as required for each course level at the candidate’s home school or in a MGTEI participating school in the candidate’s local area.
