Education Credentials

Our school offers several programs that include both teaching credentialing and service credentialing. Benerd's focus is to guide our students through the process of obtaining not only a degree but also to help them through the credentialing process. For students who are interested in teaching at the elementary or secondary levels, we offer programs that lead to the Multiple Subject or Single Subject California Teaching Credential. If a student desires to teach special education, the Benerd School of Education offers Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Severe Education Specialist California Credential programs. All of the credentials that we offer are preliminary aside from the School Psychology Credential.

The Benerd School of Education is accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC), the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP).

Service Credentials
Our credentialing office offers a variety of service credential programs. Students looking to get a service credential may be interested in becoming a supervisor, administrator, or counselor within the education realm.
