Career and Technical Education (CTE) Certificate

Plan 2/Business and Industry Route teacher certification is a short program for teacher candidates who possess 6,000 paid industry work experience in a specific area. The certificate allows teacher candidates to teach only in that specific area. 

The Plan 2 requirements are as follows:

  • Document three years (6000 hours) of paid occupational experience in the specific CTE subcategory/specialty area for which certification is sought. One year (2,000 hours) must be within the past six years. If any of the 2000 hours are more than six years old, 300 hours of the experience must be within the past two years;
  • complete EWUs approved Plan 2/Business and Industry Route program.

When you complete the Plan 2 program, you will have a Washington State residency certificate to teach in grades 7–12 ONLY in your specialty area of certification. You will also be certified to teach work-site learning and career choices. Visit the OSPI website for further details.

Classes are offered only as online courses. Some courses are offered as clock hours for students who possess a Washington State Teaching certificate; however, clock hours cannot be transferred to credit at any time.

Note: courses also available as clock hours for individuals who possess a Washington State Teaching Certificate.
