Since there are so many educators here, I thought this was a good place to ask for help. Has anyone been able to get credit for prior teaching through TESC or EC? When I talked to EC about it year or so ago, they said I would have to complete their portfolio process which was expensive and no guarantee of credit. The counselor advised it would be faster and cheaper to just test out, which I did. Now I'm considering a new avenue but I would have to take classes that I have been teaching for 10 years at RA community colleges. Someone told me that TESC will give credit fairly easily for courses taught by just presenting documentation. No portfolio required. I couldnt' get any more specifics than that and TESC hasn't responded to my email request. I have never attended TESC and I would just want to get these on a transcript and then send the transcript to the school I will be enrolling in for the specialized program. Would I have to fully enroll in TESC to get this done or could I just use their credit bank then have a transcript sent? This could help me avoid paying $500 per exam to challenge some of these courses or paying $1300 each to take these classes. I'm looking at using this method for at 4-6 classes, so the cost could really add up. I have taught these classes for 10 years and have 20+ years of actual work experience to back this up along with multiple certifications through the years. There just has to be a smarter, faster, less expensive way than taking all these classes. Any suggestions and input is greatly appreciated!
