Career Tech Educator Certification

How do I BECOME CERTIFIED in Washington?

Regular CTE

For those who do not qualify for the initial CTE teaching certificate, there are two limited certificates available to meet the needs of employers:
NOTE: Individuals cannot request these certificates without coordinating with a school district or skills center.


Worksite Learning and Career Choices - Due to recent reviews of WAC 181-77-068 Worksite Learning and Career Choices will no longer be available for CTE conditional certifications.

Our office cannot grant any CTE Conditionals for Worksite Learning and/or Worksite Learning and Career Choices. Even if completion the WSL course, our office cannot grant the CTE conditional certificate. The teacher/applicant will need to enroll in the BLOCK I (college/university route) or BLOCK II (Business and Industry route program) in an area other than Worksite Learning and work towards obtaining the CTE Initial.

If you have completed the Worksite Learning course, and hold a CTE probationary, CTE initial or CTE continuing please use the Form 4075W and submit the signed original to our office.
