Career-Tech Supplemental License


Have work experience and are now interested in teaching career-technical pathways? Then Career-Tech is the program for you!

Career_Tech StudentThe Career-Tech 27-Hour Supplemental License program is designed for individuals seeking licensure for a specific career-technical pathway for teaching in an approved career-tech workforce development program. Pathways include agriculture, health careers, business, family and consumer science careers, marketing, or career-technical.

You must have at least 5 years professional work experience in a career field, and have been hired by a school district to teach in that field. Because this program is designed for working educators, courses are offered afternoons and evenings. Completion of the program takes two years.

For those who already hold a Bachelor’s degree who are interested in pursuing a Master’s degree, 15 of the 27 credit hours may count toward the Master’s degree in Career Tech (a 30 credit-hour program); many students choose to pursue both. You must choose this option before enrolling. For more information on the Master’s program, click here.
