The International Teaching Certificate is issued to teachers from foreign countries who are contracted through the foreign teacher program as authorized by federal statutes enacted by the Congress of the United States or other foreign teacher recruitment programs approved by the United States Department of State or the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services and who are working under a J-1 or Q-1 visa.  The certificate is valid for the length of the holder’s J-1 or Q-1 visa and may be extended to align with the date of an extended J-1 or Q-1 visa, not to exceed 12 years. International teachers who are requesting a certificate to teach a foreign language may qualify for an approved area in the language by submitting a letter from a department chair or dean of an accredited institution in another country or in the United States verifying that the teacher is proficient in the language he or she intends to teach.
