Standard Five Year License Renewals Requirements:

6 renewal credits and the mandatory reporter training for child and dependent adult abuse.

For renewals, Iowa accepts licensure renewal credits from an approved Iowa provider such as the AEA system, ISEA, PEI, Iowa Safe Schools, MISIC, or undergraduate or graduate college credits from a regionally-accredited institution. If you choose an out-of-state program, college semester hour credits must be earned (not CEUs or staff development). Credits need to be earned after the issue date of the current license, or be no more than five years old if the license is expired. Credits should be relevant to education or an endorsement area.

[All TPAI courses are at graduate level.]
