The Foundational Level Mathematics Teaching Credential (FLMTC) Preparation Institute at Sonoma State University will prepare teachers to earn a Foundational Level Mathematics Teaching Credential. This Institute will provide intensive review of mathematics required for the CSET Mathematics tests, secondary mathematics teaching methods course work, and CSET test preparation.

The institute consists of 3 weeks during the summer, M-Th, 9:00 am - 3:30 pm, and a Fall Course consisting of 5 Saturdays and a Spring Course consisting of 5 Saturdays.


The FLMTC authorizes teaching general mathematics, all levels of algebra, probability and statistics, geometry, and consumer mathematics, but not calculus or mathematics analysis.

  • provide the required secondary mathematics teaching methods course
  • provide test preparation
  • cover materials and fees such as SSU Extended Education class fees, reimburse the test registration fees, and credential filing costs. Participant pays for textbooks.

How Much Will the FLMTC Preparation Institute Cost?

There is no fee to participate in the FLMTC Institute, but participants must pay for textbooks. Test registration fees and credential fees will be entirely refunded to those who complete the Institute. All other course costs are covered, materials and SSU Extended Education fees.
