Renewing a Standard Certificate

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is required for all Texas educators holding a standard certificate. The appropriate number of clock-hours of continuing professional education (CPE) must be completed during each five-year renewal period.

Classroom teachers must complete 150 CPE hours. No more than 150 CPE hours are required, even if the educator holds multiple classroom certificates.

Graduate coursework is an acceptable CPE activity. For further information visit the website listed below.

Completing undergraduate courses, graduate courses, or training programs that are taken through an accredited institution of higher education that at the time was accredited or otherwise approved by an accrediting organization recognized the Texas Higher Education Board.

[1 semester credit hour is equivalent to 15 CPE clock-hours. One 3-credit TPAI course=45 CPE clock hours.]

[All TPAI courses are at graduate level.]
