Meeting State Requirements for Arizona Teachers

What’s Your Goal?

Renew My Arizona Teaching Certificate

We have helped thousands of teachers, many from Arizona, renew their certificates, increase their salaries and advance their careers.

Renew Your Certificate

The six-year Standard Teaching Certificate may be renewed with proof of 15 clock hours of professional development activities or 1 semester hour of college coursework for each year of the certificate term. This means you will need 90 clock hours or 6 semester hours of college coursework by the time you need to renew.

Credit Conversion

1 Teaching Channel with Learners Edge graduate level, continuing education credit = 1 semester hour = 15 clock hours

Each Teaching Channel with Learners Edge 3-credit course requires approximately 45 hours for course completion.

You can meet your renewal requirements through our graduate level, continuing education courses, Professional Development offerings, or Flex Credit courses. See examples below.

Select any graduate level, continuing education or hours-based courses to meet your needs.

Converting from Provisional to Standard Certificate

The Provisional  Teaching Certificate  is valid for three years and must be converted to a six-year Standard Teaching Certificate  at least two months prior to it expiring.

Why You Should Enroll in Courses as a Long-Term Investment

In many districts, teachers gain a salary increase when they accrue graduate-level credits. But have you considered the money you leave on the table when you delay accruing those credits?

Teachers who gain an extra $8K in salary 20 years before retirement bring home an extra $160K in earnings. And those teachers may also receive a higher pension by finishing their careers at an advance salary level. Compare that to the educator who achieves that goal 10 years later: $80K less income. See what credit accrual could mean for you by using our salary calculator. Be sure to check our course bundles that let you accrue credits at less cost and on a pay-as-you-learn plan.
