I have a standard Texas teaching certificate and I want to add certifications.
If you hold a valid Texas classroom teaching certificate and a bachelor's degree you may add classroom certification areas by completing the appropriate examination.
You must register for the test through the Educational Testing Service (outside source). Once you have passed the test you must log in to your account, verify your scores and apply for the certificate.
Additional Certification by Examination Steps:
Certification by Examination is Not Available for:
- Initial certification
- Career and Technology certification based on skill and work experience
- Teachers of Students with Visual Impairments
- A certificate other than classroom teacher (e.g. School Counselor, Principal, Superintendent, Learning Resources/School Librarian, Educational Diagnostician)
