Teacher Licensure / Alternative Licensure Courses

Individuals who are currently teaching with a provisional license are required by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to take specific professional education courses within a three-year period from the time they begin teaching.  Programs in the Virginia Tech Department of Teaching and Learning, including Career and Technical Education, offer a variety of courses online that will satisfy the VDOE course requirements.  All required courses are offered via distance learning from Virginia Tech. 

A list of the course offerings by VT that will satisfy the VDOE requirements for Career and Technical Education teachers with a provisional license may be found below.  Completing the one-hour EDCT courses listed below will satisfy the VDOE six-hour requirement for curriculum and instruction.  These one-hour courses may only be taken by practicing teachers with a provisional license.
