How to Become AP Certified

So I've been thinking about moving and I feel that being AP certified may make it easier for me to find work at another school since I'll be qualified to teach a bigger variety of classes.

Unfortunately, I'm struggling finding the specifics on how to become AP certified, specifically in Arizona. Any suggestions or resources from people who are AP certified?

Thank you SO much.

There isn't a broad AP certification. You have to get certified in a specific class, like I teach AP Calculus AB and AP Statistics, so I have certifications in both classes. To get certified, you have to take a week long class, usually at a university, that is taught by other AP teachers and the writers of the AP Exams. This is called AP Summer Institute (APSI). At the end of the class, you sit through an actual AP Exam and once you get your score, you get a certificate.

The cost of the class is around $600.
