Licensure Renewal

 
Educators are required to maintain their professional educator's license by completing eight Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every five years.

A unit of renewal credit (CEU) is equal to 10 clock hours of professional development, so it's a good idea to start the renewal process early!  Need some ideas for PD?  Check the CCS Professional Development page.
 
Submit certificates from completed PD sessions through Timekeeper.  If your license expires in 2021, submit your CEUs by May 2021.  Central Office staff will send your paperwork to NCDPI for processing.  You will need to cover the license renewal fee.
