Steps to Earn Your Certification
You must earn a professional license in order to teach, just as you would to practice law or medicine. Each state sets its own teacher training and licensure requirements, so the rules can vary depending on where you live.
Understand the rules for your region.
If you’re looking to teach in one of our partner regions, you can access comprehensive certification explainers and tools to help you compare teacher preparation programs.
We work with state and local agencies to bring you information you can trust.
