According to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (DEED) for online certification renewal of a 5-year or 10-year certificate, six semester hours (or nine quarter hours) of credit earned. You may also need to get verification from your principal, school administrator, superintendent or director.

Your six renewal credits must meet one of the following requirements:
- Related to your employment at the time of renewal, if that employment requires a certificate;
- Related to at least one of your endorsement areas, or
- A required element of a program that will lead to an endorsement that you are actively pursuing.
