The state of North Dakota’s educator licenses fall into two categories: Initial Licenses and Renewal Licenses. Except for the Two-Year Initial license renewal, all types of licenses require reeducation credits to renew. If an individual currently holds a Five-Year Initial or a Five-Year Renewal License, the re-education requirement is 6 semester hours of college coursework to renew. If an individual has not completed the reeducation requirements for the five-year or re-entry license, the Two-year Probationary License is issued.
For additional information about certification, please, consult the North Dakota Education Standards and Practices Board.
