New for 2015!  Thank you for your interest in FAST TRAIN Programs.  Our degree programs for international teachers have become the Teaching Culturally, Linguistically Diverse & Exceptional Learners Program –M.Ed. and certificate programs that prepares professionals for the complex, global classrooms of tomorrow.  Our programs are still offered in convenient online & hybrid formats for international teachers, with the quality and affordability that FAST TRAIN has delivered for the last 25 years.

Current M.Ed. students (i.e. those students who began the ESL, Elementary, Special Education or IB programs prior to Fall 2015) can choose to switch into the new degree program in consultation with an academic advisor.  For more information, review our new Teaching Culturally, Linguistically Diverse & Exceptional Learners program.
