This paper discusses possible modifications to the teaching licensure program curriculum for primary and secondary school teachers in Mongolia. Teaching license and certification program for all primary and secondary school teachers (n≈4000-4500) teaching for 1 year, 5 years as well as 10 years in public and private schools is conducted to award or renew teaching license by the Institute of Teachers‟ Professional Development (ITPD) affiliated to the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (MECS), Mongolia during mid-term breaks. After the teaching license renewal in the 10th teaching year, there is no other obligatory teaching licensure program on the subject matter for school teachers in the country. Since 2012, its curriculum has been implemented and this sandwich course lasts for 50 days (15 days online + 5 days in the classroom + 30 days for online learning in workplace or secondary schools). MECS sets the program objectives and mainly ITPD instructors called methodologists and guest faculty conduct the program. The certification program consists of four modules such as education policy, methodology of teaching the subject matters, professional ethics and ICT application in learning and teaching. In reality, the entire program mainly focuses on pedagogy or methodology of teaching the subject matters. In addition to it, in some other in-service training or workshops, approximately 60-70% of the expenses are for travel costs for participants in this vast landlocked country. Thus it focuses on the teacher’s essential qualifications of ICT and its standard required in the Internet era in the country. Undoubtedly, ICT competency in teacher education not only helps maintain effective continuing professional development but also makes a significant contribution to save time and money for in-service teacher training in the unique teaching and learning environment in far remote areas in Mongolia.
