Colorado State Requirements

Colorado Teaching License Renewal

We're here to help Colorado teachers.

  
+Renew Your License | State Requirements

 

Renew Your Professional License :

Obtain proof of completion of 6 semester hours or 90 clock hours of professional development.

Your credits must not be more than 5 years old.

Learners Edge offers both professional development  and continuing education courses to help meet this requirement.

Teachers who hold a professional license with an elementary, English, math, science, social studies, or any middle-level endorsement are required to document 45 clock hours of applicable professional development in culturally and linguistically diverse education training. (A designation will be added to your certificate to indicate "yes," you have met the requirement; "no," you have not met the requirements and still need to do so; or "optional" for individuals whos licenses are not endorsed in one of the areas listed above.)

  • If you presently hold a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Education endorsement (or CLD Bilingual, LDE or LDE Bilingual), you have already met this requirement and do not need to document 45 hours of professional learning.
  • If your present license expires on or before August 31, 2023, you may renew your license once before you have to meet these requirements. (Please note: the designation will still appear on your license, so if you meet the requirements now, please take the time to complete and submit the matrix or obtain a certificate from an approved provider.) 
  • If your present license expires on or after September 1, 2023, you will need to meet the requirement at the time of renewal.
