Verification of Teaching Experience

Director certification requires a minimum of five years of successful teaching in vocational education.

The Bureau of Teacher Preparation and Certification of the Pennsylvania Department of Education determines whether a candidate meets the teaching experience requirement. Prospective candidates who have doubts concerning experience requirements should submit PDE Forms 338G and 338V to the Bureau, requesting a pre-program definition of qualifying experience prior to enrollment.
