Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

As a public school teacher, you must be licensed under regulations established by the department of education of the state in which you are teaching. Although requirements vary by state, most require a bachelor's degree and the completion of a state-approved education program. Certain courses and education credits must be fulfilled as part of these training programs, and some states may also require you to maintain a minimum grade point average or even obtain a master's degree in education before teaching. Technology training is also a part of many states' licensing requirements. Not all states require licensure for teachers in private or parochial schools.
