Certificate Renewal


In Illinois, those who hold education-related certifications are required to maintain their certificates by keeping them registered with the county in which the educator works (all certificates) and to prove that they are staying up-to-date within their profession by documenting participation in continuing professional development (some certificates).

Those who must document professional development include those who are employed using:

  • Type 04 Certificates - Teaching Early Childhood Education
  • Type 03 Certificates - Teaching Elementary Education
  • Type 09 Certificates - Teaching Secondary Education
  • Type 10 Certificates - Teaching Special
  • Type 73 Certificates - School Service Personnel (Guidance Counselors, Nurses, Psychologists, and Social Workers)
