License renewal resources
Slideshows and links to aid educators in the recertification process.
All educators holding Profession level educator licenses must renew their license(s) every five years. The expiration dates of all Professional licenses are listed on the licenses. Educators who cannot locate their licenses are advised to obtain a duplicate of the licenses from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Duplicates can be ordered from the DESE website by clicking on ELAR at http://www.doe.mass.edu/educators/e_license.html.
MTA’s Center for Education Policy and Practice will provide an in district workshop on Professional License Renewal upon the request of local association presidents. CEPP also offers the same workshop at least once a month during the school year by webinar. Instructions on how to schedule a workshop or register for a webinar are provided in the CEPP catalog of courses and workshops.
