Maine Teacher Certification Renewal


Below is a summary of how Learners Edge may help your continuing education and Maine teaching certification renewal needs. This summary should in no way release individuals from their responsibility of ensuring that the course they take meets their professional needs. We hope it provides assistance in understanding how Learners Edge might help you in the accumulation of clock hours or graduate credit for salary advancement and the Maine teaching relicensure process.

See the Maine Department of Education website for complete ME teacher relicensure information. 

Teaching Certification Renewal


One Year Certificate Renewal:

Full Certificate Renewal:

If you are employed in Maine under the certificate to be renewed (Type 32, 33 & 34):

Acquire the recommendation and signature of the certification support system chairperson on the back of the application, submit the completed application, and the appropriate non-refundable fee(s); we do not need separate documentation of your six renewal credits.
(see our courses)

If employed in a private school in Maine that does not have an approved support system, submit the completed application, six credits of approved study (see #4), and the appropriate non-refundable fee(s). 

 If you are not employed in Maine under a professional certificate (Type 34):

Submit six credits of approved study taken within the last five years.
(see our courses)

One credit = one semester hour = 1.5 CEUs = 15 clock hours.

Submit only official transcripts for college courses.

We do not accept audited courses. Also submit the appropriate non-refundable fee(s). If sending college transcripts, we need official transcripts only. Do not send grade reports, faxed transcripts, or copies of official transcripts.
