I recently completed my Add-on Licensure Program for Adapted Physical Education.  The staff at the Center for Additional Teaching Licenses was extremely helpful in answering all of my questions and always pointing me in the right direction.  I was able to complete the program at my own pace on top of being a full time teacher and coaching two varsity level sports.  I was even able to submit evidence of life experience in lieu of some of my required coursework.  The experience of completing the add-on program has been very rewarding and has had a positive impact on my teaching.  I would highly recommend the UW-Oshkosh Add-on program for anyone looking to add an additional teaching license.
