Moving from an Initial License to a Professional License - The Induction Program Information

Applicant Information

A professional license may be issued to an applicant who holds a Colorado Initial License and has completed a Colorado State Board of Education approved induction program. An induction program is provided by Colorado school districts, some private and charter schools, approved facilities and/or BOCES and includes supervision by mentor teachers, ongoing professional development and training, including ethics, and performance evaluations. Contact the school principal or the district's Personnel/Human Resources office for information about their induction program.

The only requirement to move from a initial license to a professional license is completion of an approved induction program. It is not necessary to complete renewal credit.
