Learn how to renew a Professional Educator Certification or reinstate a Professional Educator Certification in North Dakota
After fulfilling the requirements and receiving your Initial License to teach in North Dakota, you must successfully teach for 18 months in a state school before applying for your Regular Professional License. You must also have been under contract with a North Dakota school for at least 30 days within the past five years, and have completed six professional development renewal credits in that time.
If you have not held a North Dakota teaching license for more than five years, you may apply for re-entry. You must have completed at least four semester hours of professional development credit within the past five years to be eligible. If you sign a teaching contract during the licensure period, you must complete eight semester hours of reeducation. You may use the same renewal form as above for reinstating your North Dakota teaching license.
