Technology Integration Coach Program

Purpose
The Alabama Technology Integration Coach Certification Program consists of a year-long program delivered in a blend of face-to-face and online environments.  The coursework is based on the ISTE Standards for Coaches, with participants completing a showcase product throughout the program.

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 ALET Certification Program Committee. Each cohort of the ALTIC program will accept a max of fifteen (15) participants.

Applications for the next school year 23-24 will come out in the late winter/early spring. We will select applicants to the cohort by May and then will start the cohort at the Fall 23 ALET Conference.
 
Requirements
Must meet all-
  • ALET Member
  • A minimum of three years of experience working in the education field
  • A letter of recommendation submitted by the district’s delegate member

Costs and Payment
The fee for the Alabama Technology Integration Coach Certification Program is $50. Participants are responsible for paying for their own travel, lodging, and meals. You will be sent an invoice by email prior to the start of the first course which must be paid prior to the start of the first course.  As each system has individual policies on certification programs, check with your CSFO to determine if the cost can be covered by your system.
 
Schedule
Typically, the face-to-face coursework runs in conjunction with ALET’s Fall conference held annually in Orange Beach. Participants must attend this face-to-face coursework with the cohort to which they are assigned. This group will work collaboratively in order to create a professional network of peers. The remaining coursework is covered in an online environment. During the year-long program, cohort members will be given the opportunity to visit fellow coaches. Additionally, monthly conversations occur in a variety of ways. Detailed information will be provided to accepted cohort members.
