Renewing Maine Teaching Credentials

Requirements: 6 semester credits.

  • You can renew your credentials if your certificate has not been expired more than six months. If your certificate did expire more than 6 months prior, please submit an application for new credentials.
  • There are technically no “renewals” of a CHRC (background check), so please submit a new credential application.
  • Please note that if you work in a Maine Public School, you will have a Support Chair that will recommend you for renewal. Please work with that individual as Maine School Districts may have additional expectations.
  • If you need to submit transcripts or contact hours, please be sure you have them prepared for upload as PDF documents.

[All TPAI courses are at graduate level]
