Meeting Texas State Requirements

What’s Your Goal?

Renew My Texas Certificate

We have helped thousands of teachers, many from Texas, renew their certificates, increase their salaries and advance their careers. Teaching Channel with Learners Edge is an approved Continuing Professional Education (CPE) provider in Texas and is listed on the Texas Education Association (TEA) website under the provider name: Learners Edge.

Renew Your Certificate

The Standard Certificate is renewable every five years. Educators must complete 150 CPE Hours for renewal. If you hold an administrative and/or student services certificate you must complete 200 CPE hours. No more than 200 CPE hours are required, even if you hold multiple certificates, such as: classroom, administrative and student services certificates.

Credit Conversion

1 Teaching Channel with Learners Edge graduate level, continuing education credit = 15 CPE hours

1 hour of professional development = 1 CPE hour

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

Standard Certificate Renewal

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

Are you looking for CPE hours? Teaching Channel with Learners Edge recommends:

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.
