What is CIET Program?
Very briefly “Certified International E-Teacher” or CIET program is a 50 hour simple, concise, practical, job-oriented, hands-on, instructor-lead, face-to-face training program done LIVE in a virtual classroom equipped with 2-way voice-audio-video interactivity, smart-white-boards and many other features all happening in your browser window Click on the Link to see a typical online LIVE training session in progress: http://tinyurl.com/y9l6u88
Aim of the CIET Program
Ultimate aim of the CIET program is to launch you on the internet as an independent e-teaching professional capable of preparing your own e-lessons and eventually delivering them confidently to class on the internet from your PC to Anyone… Anywhere in the World!
And to do the program you don’t have to go anywhere you will do it sitting at home in front of your PC or Laptop from any location in the world!!
So once you go through this training, you should expect to teach or train your pupils sitting at home and earn extra money simultaneously with your present job!!!
So what will I get when I finish the CIET Program?
Firstly under the CIET training program we will be guided step-by-step and learn how to transform your present classroom teaching experience & skills in your subject into an online teaching expertise.
Yet another path-breaking experience you would have when you go through this entire training by a real instructor training you LIVE in a Virtual Classroom equipped with tools like smart-white-boards, voice/audio/video/text chat and much more.

Remember once you are e-trained in this way naturally at the end of training automatically you will have the confidence to train & use these very same tools from any location thus facing a LIVE class interactively which is exactly the way you were trained.
The CIET Course is completed in 50 hours with 3 hours daily online instructor-lead tutoring for 9 days in a prefixed time-band selected by you. 27 hours (3 hrs X 9 days = 27 hours) done LIVE with an instructor + 23 hours of practice sessions coupled with training exercises, quizzes & tests to be completed in your spare time over the 9 days
You will also learn how to adapt, prepare & convert your existing classroom lessons into e-Lessons for teaching your class on the internet.
Remember you will have the freedom to conduct your classes LIVE from anywhere and anytime in the world as long as you are connected with a broadband.
In fact, Time, Place & distance will no longer be a limitation to train or teach. You could use this training anyway you feel like may be giving e-tuitions to your pupils local or e-teaching in e-schools in the world
In addition, you will also be taught research methods & techniques in the art of searching on Google & other internet Search Engines in order to enrich your e-lessons with dynamic online content in the form of multimedia content like presentations, animations, videos, & audios etc which are mostly free.
This in turn, it will not only make your lessons interesting & effective both for you as well as your pupils but ultimately pave the way for you to start charging for these lessons on an hourly basis.
The lessons which you once prepare in your subject specialisation remain your property which you can use again & again wherever necessary improving them for even greater effectiveness.
Then you will be given exhaustive training and mentored in the art of delivery of your lessons LIVE on the internet with learners from around the world
Above all this professional quality Virtual Classroom on the internet is free with all its features like multiple Smart Boards, Multimedia, LIVE Audio/Video, text chat, storage of lessons & lot more.
Then your free version of the LIVE Virtual Classroom of your own where you can hold any number of paid private or free public & practice classes with a capacity of 1-50 students per class.
As part of the CIET training you will also be taught how to make & accept online payments for your assignments without exposing your Credit or Debit card & learn to connect your account for transfer of payments
Just imagine this very Virtual Classroom which you will be using will give you access to over 50,000 learners world wide who could be your potential pupils for paid classes
Here you can hold paid or free virtual classes depending upon your level of competence classes and charging them whatever fees.
Then specially designed training exercises & tests will help you to upgrade your competency to professional level in the use like MS Word, PowerPoint & Excel in the use of all important features of these programs which will once again help you in general in your career at large
In additions, if you are using two fingers for typing by looking at the keyboard this training for the CIET course will help you retrain in couple of hours in the art of typing using all fingers without looking at the key-board.
Finally in order to help you promote your teacher profile world-wide you will be guided to completely recast your CV afresh which will be then put online on important portals where you will find paid online teaching assignments.
Most important of all, under ICPI’s International Online Guest Faculty (IOGF) program after the CIET course when you have 200 hours or sessions of e-teaching experience you will be once again Trained, Tested & Licensed to undertake paid assignments for training of e-teachers for the ICPI.
Remember ICPI paid assignments will be in addition to your own paid teaching practice in your own subject specialization
Ultimately after certification you become an invaluable part of the ICPI Family of teachers & trainers world-wide with whom we keep in constant touch through e-workshops, webinars, emails, blogs & group discussions & much more. As an institution we are with you for life
