CTE Teacher Licensure Requirements: 50 States and District of Columbia

While the traditional teacher certification route - enrolling in and completing a four-year teacher preparation program - is common across the states, there are a number of different routes an educator can take to become certified and enter the classroom. Other pathways include alternative certification through a non-profit, college, university, or online program and work-based learning.

This document, produced by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), provides state-by-state information on teacher licensure policies for Career Technical Education (CTE) teachers. It includes data on CTE-related teacher certification, certification routes, length of teacher certifications or renewal, professional development and recruitment for all states and D.C.
