Be sure to confirm your specific teaching license renewal requirements with your state or local license-granting authority prior to enrolling.
In Georgia, teaching certificates are valid for five years. During that five-year period, in order to be eligible for renewal you must:
- Complete 6 semester hours of college course work from accredited colleges/universities
- Or 10 credits of Georgia Professional Learning Units (PLUs)
- Or 10 credits of U.S. Department of Education Teacher-to-Teacher Workshops
- Or 10 credits of continuing education units under the International Association for Continuing Education Units (IACET)
According to the Georgia Department of Education, acceptable professional development acquired from and through regionally-accredited post secondary institutions may be used for recertification and certificate upgrade.
Model Teaching offers courses provided through regionally-accredited university partners. These institutions are accredited by several accrediting agencies. Our Academic Credit University-Partnered Courses are acceptable for Georgia teacher license renewal and Professional Development requirement hours according to The Georgia Department of Education. All courses completed through our academic partners will include access to an official transcript from that academic institution for submission to any license-granting authority.
