Understanding Licensure

Understanding licensure requirements in Virginia can be a complex task.  

At the Center for Teaching Excellence, we try to provide answers to common questions you might have about licensure or recertification.

For specific advice on your licensure needs, you should seek clarification with your school division’s licensure specialist.
