A new Web site offers teachers the ability to look at the certification requirements, as well as the average salaries, of any in state in the county, with a few clicks of the mouse.

It’s called “CertificationMap.Com, and it’s a creation of MAT@USC, the University of Southern California’s Rossier School of Education’s Master of Arts in Teaching program, which delivered online.

The “map” would allow a job-seeker, career-changer, or educator of any sort to examine any state’s requirements on skill testing, subject-area competence testing, and prerequisite coursework. It also allows visitors to scroll through various state department of education homepages.
