Arizona Teacher Professional Development
Clock Hour Guidelines for Arizona Teachers
The Arizona Department of Education requires teachers to obtain 15 clock hours of professional development activities for every year of their standard teaching certificate term. Arizona allows up to 30 clock hours per year of professional development through professional conferences and workshops related to teaching or public education to be submitted for renewal.
The Arizona Department of Education offers several resources for teachers to gain continuing education training and earn clock hours. We encourage teachers who wish to take our trainings to use our convenient Approval Request Form to request approval of our course content for ongoing Arizona teaching clock hour requirements.
- Use our Request Approval form to request approval for a Model Teaching course to be used to satisfy your clock hour requirements.
- Receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the course, documenting course clock hours and micro-credential badges.
