Northern Essex Community College will offer a Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure prep course at the new Northern Essex Riverwalk location in Lawrence.

The noncredit 10-hour (four-week) course, offered through Northern Essex Community College's Corporate and Community Education Center, is designed to prepare those who plan to take the September 2011 Communication and Literacy Skills Test, which is one of the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure.

The CLST is the first test required towards licensure as a teacher or educational administrator and for students transferring to four-year colleges to become teachers in the state of Massachusetts.

This course provides an overview of the test, an intensive review of the skills assessed by the test, the opportunity to take sample tests, and strategies for test-taking.

It will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8:30 p.m. starting Aug. 3. The cost is $195, which includes materials.
