Upon successful completion of the program, the participant may apply to the Board of Educational Examiners for authorization to substitute teach. Iowa licensure also requires a state and federal background check. Receiving a Substitute Authorization will allow an individual to substitute PK-12 for no more than five consecutive days in one job assignment and no more than 10 of 30 days in one assignment. An individual who holds a Paraeducator Certificate AND completes this course will be authorized to substitute in the special education classroom in which the individual paraeducator is employed.

Audience: Persons with B.S. or B.A. outside of Education who want to substitute PK-12, and CertifiedParaeducators who want to become authorized to substitute teach in the special education classroom to which they are assigned.
