The Sacramento County Office of Education provides candidates an opportunity to earn a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential through our one-year program. The program is accredited through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) and is comprised of six courses. The courses are based on the California Professional Standards for Education Leaders (CPSELs) and integration of Cal APA exam content.
PLEASE NOTE: First priority is given to qualified applicants who work in a Sacramento County school or district.
In addition to successful completion of the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential Program, preliminary candidates are required to take, and pass, all three cycles of the Cal APA Exam in order to receive their Preliminary Administrative Services Credential.
Cal APA Exam fees are not included in the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential Program fees.
These fees are paid separately by the participant.
* PLEASE NOTE: Fee waivers for CalAPA Cycle 1, 2, and 3 are available to you! Register for ALL THREE cycles, pay the fees upfront, and get reimbursed at a later date!
Fees are subject to change at the discretion of the California Department of Education. At this time, all CalAPA Exam Fees are waived by CTC.
