How do I keep and renew a teaching license in Wyoming?
Teachers use online professional development and continuing education courses to renew a teaching license in WY.
All Wyoming educators are required to complete Professional Development/Renewal Credits in order to renew a license or permit. Renewal requirements vary depending on the type of license or permit an applicant holds. The requirements for renewing your specific license or permit are listed on the reverse side of the license or permit itself. Please review your license or permit prior to submitting a renewal application to ensure you have met all renewal requirements for your specific license or permit type.
For most teaching fields, five Professional Development/Renewal Credits will be required to renew. However, YOU are responsible for ensuring that you have met the renewal requirements for your specific license or permit type, prior to renewal.
