This article describes the need for development and deployment of a new model graduate level alternative certification program for physics teachers at SUNY-Buffalo State College. The Masters of Science Education (Physics with NYSED Transitional B Certification) program accommodates science and engineering professionals with appropriate bachelors degrees who wish to change career paths into physics teaching. The alternative certification program is distinctive in that candidates minimize their income disruption and bypass student teaching through an intensive full time Spring-Summer introductory component leading to NYSED Transitional B Certification, followed by paid, mentored teaching employment and evening coursework for two calendar years. This alternative certification program is made possible through physics teachers' summer academy courses, supplemented by regular semester evening course and online offerings. Courses are shared with a second new program - the Masters of Science Education (Physics), which serves already certified science teachers (usually in subjects other than physics) who wish to obtain a master's degree for permanent teacher certification and usually teacher certification in a second discipline -- physics.
