Certification Renewal

License Renewal: every 5 years

As of September 1, 2015 - an audit system for renewal credit is no longer valid.

Requirement: six (6) professional development credits  (see our courses)

  • Official transcripts and/or in-service forms showing verification of the six (6) credits earned during the validity period of the credential must be included with the application.

If a multi-subject K-8 teacher or K-12 special education teacher, you need verification of completion of the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Course (ICLC) or passage of the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Assessment (ICLA).

If an administrator, math teacher, or K-8 teacher, you need verification of completion of the Idaho Mathematics In-service Program (MTI/TMT).
