Gaining Additional Teaching Certification

If you, as a teacher, already hold the proper classroom certification and a Bachelor’s degree, you can add classroom certification in additional areas by taking the proper test for that subject area. However, certification by examination is not available for
  • Initial certification
  • Career and technology certification based on skill and work experience
  • A class of certificate other than classroom teacher (e.g. School Counselor, Principal, Superintendent, Learning Resources/School Librarian, Educational Diagnostician)
  • A certificate for which no certification examination has been developed
