Career and technical educators train as teachers in a formal college preparatory program. Others come from industry. For many career & technical educators teaching is a second or third career after they acquire valuable experience in their industry.
As a credentialed educator, you’re solely responsible for maintaining a valid Idaho certification, continually meeting current State of Board Education rules and Idaho statutory requirements, and notifying the Educator Certification team of any changes in your contact information.
