So you want to earn your Connecticut Teacher Certification? Let's take a look at the step by step instructions:

Traditional Approach for the Connecticut Teacher Certification

  1. Get a Bachelors or Masters Degree from an accredited institution. 
  2. Take a teacher prep course. This may be student teaching, specific prep programs, or an internship. In order to receive an Connecticut Teacher Certification, you must have some experience in teaching, even if it’s unpaid
  3. You’ll need to complete the content area assessment through the Praxis I and Praxis II. Call (860) 713-6969 for more information
  4. Submit the following:
    • Completed Application (ED 170A)
    • $100 check/money order payable to Treasurer, State of Connecticut
    • Official transcripts, degrees, and school credits
    • Mail to:
      Connecticut State Department of Education
      Bureau of Educator Preparation and Certification
      P.O. Box 150471-Room 243
      Hartford, CT. 06115-0471
    • For more information, call (860) 713-6969
  5. Do you want to renew your teaching credentials in Connecticut?

Alternative Approach for the Connecticut Teacher Certification

Alternatively, there is another way you can take to get your Connecticut Teacher Certification. This approach will allow you to teach without completing the teacher education program.

One option is for you to complete a 9 week summer teaching program before you begin in the classroom. The other option is for people who are currently working and plan to begin their teaching career part time. They can attend a 24 week course with classes during nights and weekends. The following are the rest of the steps to both of the options:

  1. Obviously you must still earn your Bachelors Degree from an accredited university. Ideally, you should always continue your education in efforts to earn a Master’s Degree.
  2. You’ll need to complete the content area assessment through the Praxis I and Praxis II or ACTFL exams.
  3. Speak to someone at the office in regards to other requirements: (860) 947-1300.
  4. You’ll receive a Temporary 90-day Certificate from the Superintendent
  5. You’ll need to apply for the Initial Educator Certificate after your 90 days is finished
  6. Other requirements:
    • 20 months of successful teaching
    • 30 hours of Continuing Education
    • Complete Beginning Educator Support and Training (BEST)
  7. Submit the following:
    • Completed Application (ED 172)
    • Mail to:
      Connecticut State Department of Education
      Bureau of Educator Preparation and Certification
      P.O. Box 150471-Room 243
      Hartford, CT. 06115-0471
