Be sure to confirm your specific teaching license renewal requirements with your state or local license-granting authority prior to enrolling.
The Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission issues several different teaching licenses based on subject area and expertise. In general, teachers may earn a Preliminary Teaching License, Professional Teaching License or Legacy Teaching License, based on the level of experience of the teacher.
Preliminary Teaching License
The Preliminary Teaching License is issued to new teachers who have completed a Commission-approved teacher preparation program. The Preliminary Teaching License signifies that the educator is a novice teacher who has not met the advanced competencies and experience requirements for the Professional Teaching License. The Preliminary Teaching License must be renewed every 3 years by completing 75 continuing professional development units (PDUs) You may advance to a Professional Teaching License by meeting several requirements.
