Oregon Teaching License Renewal
The Basic Teaching License is no longer issued. Depending on the educator’s professional experience, the Basic Teaching License will be renewed as a Professional Teaching License or a Legacy Teaching License.
Professional Teaching License: 5-year license
The Professional Teaching License is issued to experienced teachers who have successfully demonstrated an advanced level of educator knowledge, skills, and dispositions.
Renewal Requirements: Complete 125 continuing professional development units (PDUs)
Legacy Teaching License: 3-year license
The Legacy Teaching License is issued to veteran teachers to recognize their long-term employment and experience in the public schools without obliging them to meet the new advanced competency requirements of the Professional Teaching License.
Renewal Requirements: Complete 75 continuing professional development units (PDUs)
