The Alabama State Department of Education encourages certified Alabama teachers to expand their knowledge and instructional skills through continuing education and professional development. Alabama requires teachers to continue their teacher training throughout their careers.
The renewal process includes completing an application and choosing among different options, such as earning academic credits and professional development.
We encourage teachers and administrators to visit the Alabama State Department of Education Educator Certification page to review the specific requirements for license renewal.
Please visit: https://www.alsde.edu/sec/ec/Pages/home.aspx
And under “Certificate Renewal” on the bottom yellow bar on the screen select:
- Professional Educator (for teachers)
- Professional Leadership (for administrators)
Model Teaching provides continuing education courses through regionally accredited university partners. These credits may be used where applicable to satisfy some of the requirements for license renewal.
Please contact the Alabama State Department of Education for further information.
