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 6,000 hours of occupational experience over the past ten years (individual circumstances will be evaluated by the department);
  • 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.
