Could offering a training program boost the number of substitute teachers?

The Substitute Teacher Training Program in Rhode Island is helping to fill a need for substitute teachers, as well as helping those looking for a job a quick way to find employment. The program is completely free, self-paced, available online, but rigorous nonetheless. Over 1,200 people enrolled in the program when it opened late 2020, and so far 200 people have completed the program and 140 have found employment.
