Online Career & Technical Education Teacher Certification

For CTE I instructors seeking CTE II & CTE Restricted Substitute Licenses


The Career and Technical Education Program is currently on hiatus due to low student enrollment. We do not have a date when it will be available again in the future but hope to have a schedule available this fall.


Career and Technical Education Licensure is a pathway to teaching for candidates with an associate degree and a minimum two years working experience in a TSPC-approved CTE endorsement area.


Western Oregon University specially developed this online series for CTE I instructors working toward CTE II licenses. This 18 credit program was developed in partnership with the Oregon Department of Education and completion of this series will meet the preparation requirements set by Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) for the CTE II and CTE Restricted Substitute Licenses.


Program at a Glance:

  • Entirely Online Program
  • Candidates may begin any term
  • Classes available each term on a rotating basis
  • Students can enroll in classes as professional development opportunities
