To complete the Italian CSET, which serves to establish core competency in Italian for a single-subject credential in California, candidates must register for, and pass TWO separate sub tests: the Cultural Sub Test I & II (General Linguistics, Literature, History, Geography and Culture), and the Language Sub Test III (Oral and written competency).

Fondazione Italia administers ONLY the Language Sub Test III portion of the Italian CSET.

It is the candidates responsibility to make sure they have registered for and completed the Cultural Sub Test I & II through the CCTC website. The Cultural Sub Test portion of the Italian CSET is administered by the CCTC. To schedule an appointment with the CCTC for the Cultural Sub Test click here.

Candidates must pass both the Language and Cultural Sub Tests to pass the Italian CSET.

Passing both parts of the Italian CSET does not provide you with a single-subject credential  unless you already hold a credential in another subject. Passage of the Italian CSET confirms subject matter competency and only allows you to teach Italian in a middle or high school once you have completed a single-subject credentialing program. It is the responsibility of the candidate to make sure they have completed all the requirements for a single-subject credential.
