Certification

Candidates for certification must pass all required PECT/PRAXIS tests. Adjustments can be made to accommodate the requirements of other states except those which require a year of graduate study.

The Pennsylvania certificate is also valid in 46 states with which interstate agreements exist. An Instructional Level I certificate is valid for six years of service, during which time the following requirements must be completed: an approved induction program, 24 credit hours of post-baccalaureate course work from a state approved, four-year degree-granting institution, and three years of satisfactory full-time service under contract in Pennsylvania. A person then qualifies for Level II certification. Once a student has attained initial certification, s/he must adhere to Pennsylvania’s Act 48, which requires all teachers to complete six credit hours or 180 clock hours of professional development every five years in order to retain a valid certificate. This applies to both Instructional I and Instructional II certificates.
