The CESA 7 Virtual Substitute Teacher Preparatory Program is a virtual experience designed to prepare participants to be effective substitute teachers. Our online program will provide complete flexibility so participants may complete the required coursework when it is most convenient. Through CESA 7, participants will receive access to the Master Teacher online learning platform to complete the Foundations of Effective Substitute Teacher Training courses. CESA 7 will also provide support and guidance with the Department of Public Instruction’s application process for the Substitute Teacher License.


Training Topics:

  • Basic district and school policies and procedures

  • Teaching strategies that are age appropriate

  • Discipline, conflict resolution, and classroom management techniques

  • Health and safety issues, including handling medical emergencies

  • Techniques for starting a class

  • The culture of schools and the profession

  • Working with lesson plans

  • Educational technology use

  • Working with children with special needs, including confidentiality issues

  • Substitute teacher permit application process



Must have an associate degree or higher and complete a DPI approved substitute teacher preparatory program to qualify for a 3-Year Short Term Substitute License. 


Licensing Support

The final portion of our program includes a tutorial on how to apply for your license using the Department of Public Instruction's online licensing platform or otherwise known as the ELO. We understand this step may be intimidating or confusing for candidates so we have built an option that will provide in-person or virtual assistance to complete. Your two options are:

  • If you would like personal assistance when completing the licensing portion of the program simply submit your registration without applying a discount code. For this service the program costs $225.

  • If you feel you can complete the licensing portion on your own enter "virtual" in the discount code field and click the "apply discount code" button to complete your program 100% virtually for $175.  

And don't worry, if you decide you need additional support with the ELO but did not select that option, simply contact CESA 7 and we can make the adjustment to your program and provide the support you need. Payment is due at the time of registration.

After submitting the registration you will be taken to the payment area. Please be sure to complete the steps in to ensure your payment is properly submitted. Once we receive your registration and verify your payment you will receive an email from CESA 7 introducing you to our partners at Master Teacher.  That email will contain your login credentials that will be active within one (1) business day. We wish you well with our program! 

Please NOTE that the DPI will have separate fees associated with the license application. These can include the application itself - $125, fingerprints through Fieldprint- $36; these are estimated costs. CESA 7 has no control or choice with the costs associated with the DPI license application or process.
