Certification in Professional Education

The Certification in Professional Education (CPE) is a non-degree program started in 1984. It offers at least eighteen (18) units of professional education courses to qualify a non-education baccalaureate degree holder to teach in elementary or secondary school as required by the Department of Education (DepEd). Any holder of a bachelor’s degree may apply for admission to the program. Should the student decide to pursue a master’s degree from the College of Education later on, no more than six (6) graduate units from this non-degree program may be credited to his/her master’s program.
