Model Teaching offers great options for Utah teachers to earn clock hours for their relicensing needs. All completed courses will include a certificate of completion documenting earned hours.

Both our Professional Development, and University-Partnered Academic Credit courses should meet the requirements for Utah teacher license renewal and Professional Development requirements according to The Utah State Department of Education.  However, we encourage users to confirm their specific teaching license renewal requirements with their state or local licence-granting authority prior to enrolling.

Be sure to confirm your specific teaching license renewal requirements with your state or local license-granting authority prior to enrolling.

UTAH HOLDS SEVERAL LEVELS OF TEACHING CERTIFICATION

Level I License:
A level I license is valid for 3 years and may be renewed by showing completion of 100 points of professional development.

Level II License:
A teacher with a Level I license that has had 3 years of teaching experience may upgrade to a Level 2 license by completing Entry Years Enhancement (EYE) requirements. The EYE program asks teachers to produce a portfolio of professional development, achievements and experience that provides evidence of growth. Also, teachers must pass the PRAXIS II exam in their content area to proceed to a Level II license. Level II Licenses may be renewed every 5 years indefinitely. To renew, educators must complete 200 hours of professional development points and complete a renewal application.
Teachers who have earned a doctorate may be eligible for a level 3 license.

ACCEPTABLE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

Professional Learning Points may be earned through various modalities. According to the Utah State Board of Education: Points for renewal are awarded when learning opportunities are completed and documented on a transcript or certificate of completion. In general, points may be awarded based on clock (seat) hours, re-licensure points, or credit.

Course work can be completed through a regionally accredited college/university and alternative learning activities. See here (https://schools.utah.gov/curr/licensing/renewupgrade) for details.

Acceptable conferences, workshops, and programs can also be approved by the educator’s supervisor or a licensed administrator if the educator is accurate.

• 1 Clock hour of participated activity = 1 license renewal point
• 1 semester credit hour of university credit = 18 renewal points

Model Teaching offers professional development (clock hour) courses as well as university-partnered, academic credit courses provided through regionally-accredited universities. Both our Professional Development, and University-Partnered Academic Credit courses should meet the requirements for Utah teacher license renewal and Professional Development requirements. 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. All non-academic professional development courses taken through Model Teaching will include a certificate of completion, documenting your earned credit hours.

If you would like to confirm approval of a course, please feel free to complete and email our Request Course Approval form to conveniently gain approval from your supervisor, a licensed administrator, or the Utah State Board of Education.
