The California Subject Examinations for Teachers® (CSET®) is an exam route to meet subject matter requirements toward obtaining a California teaching credential(s). The CSET exams were developed by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and in conjunction with National Evaluation Systems, Inc. (NES) to assist in the development, administration, and scoring of the CSET.
Ventura COE offers test preparation classes for the two main types of CSET exams:
- MULTIPLE SUBJECTS: generally for obtaining a multiple subject or special education credential to teach in an elementary/self-contained classroom setting. For test information, go to the CTC CSET Multiple Subjects website.
- SINGLE SUBJECTS: generally for obtaining a single-subject or special education credential to teach in a secondary/departmentalized classroom setting. * For test information, go to the CTC CSET website (click specific subject matter area)
* We recommend that you verify with your university credential program which CSET exam is the most appropriate to take toward meeting your credential requirements.
