About CTLE Requirements

As of 2016, the State Education Department requires Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) for all holders of professional classroom teaching, educational leadership, or Level III teaching assistant certificates.

Certificate holders must complete 100 hours of CTLE training within a five-year period. Details on exact rules and how to track your hours can be found on the SED website.
