Course Description

The state requires a four-hour training for individuals to serve as a substitute teacher. Oconee RESA offers trainings that will qualify an individual to serve as a substitute.

Upon completion, candidates will be eligible to substitute teach in Baldwin, Hancock, Johnson, Putnam, Washington, and Wilkinson counties. Participants will need to contact the local school district where you wish to work and obtain an application for employment.  You must confirm with the school district that they will accept Oconee RESA's training before you register to attend the class. Details regarding local requirements to be a substitute teacher are available at each county’s board of education. It is the participant's responsibility to complete the application process with the system or systems they wish to work with. This includes an application, references, and fingerprinting/background check.

Substitutes must complete the entire training, so make sure you arrive early as the course begins promptly. Individuals arriving more than ten minutes after the starting time will not be admitted and will need to register for another workshop.
