The Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board holds several license Tiers with advancement and/or renewal of a five year license requiring 125 clock hours of professional development. Please refer to Minnesota Administrative Rules (https://www.revisor.mn.gov/rules/8710.7200/) for specifics on each tier’s specific clock hour requirements.
Model Teaching offers courses provided through regionally-accredited university partners. Our Academic Credit University-Partnered Courses may meet some of the requirements for Minnesota teacher license renewal and Professional Development requirement hours. 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.
If you would still like to confirm approval of a course, please feel free to complete and email our Request Course Approval form to the Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board. Or see below for a copy of the Minnesota Clock Hour Approval Application Form.
