Meeting State Requirements for New Hampshire Teachers

What’s Your Goal?

Renew My New Hampshire Teaching Certificate

We have helped thousands of New Hampshire teachers renew their certificates, increase their salaries and advance their career.

Renew Your Certificate

Credit Conversion

1 Teaching Channel with Learners Edge graduate level, continuing education credit = 15 continuing education hours

Each Teaching Channel with Learners Edge 3-credit course requires approximately 45 hours for course completion.

Educators under the Professional Development Master Plan applying for renewal of their credential must have the approval of the local superintendent, district administrator or nonpublic school administrator for the successful completion of the educator’s individual professional development plan. Renewal payments may be made online and superintendent recommendations for teacher renewal are also to be submitted online. The superintendent recommendation verifies that you have completed adequate professional development during the term of your certificate for renewal. Contact the Professional Development Committee in your school district for information on the renewal process. 

New Hampshire teachers employed in a non-public or charter school without a Professional Development Master Plan must complete a minimum of 75 continuing education hours: 30 hours for each specific endorsement area held and 45 hours aligned with the Professional Education Requirements (Ed 505.07) within the three-year period prior to the renewal application date. 

Take a look at these examples to see how you can earn your continuing education hours and work toward salary advancement:

Example 1: Physical Education/Coaching/Health Focus

Example 2: Reading Focus

5150: Magnifying Reading Intervention Through Science and Research (3 credits-45 continuing education hours) 

To earn only continuing education hours, choose from our Flex Credit courses or professional development courses to meet your needs.

Why You Should Enroll in Courses as a Long-Term Investment

In many districts, teachers gain a salary increase when they accrue graduate-level credits. But have you considered the money you leave on the table when you delay accruing those credits?

Teachers who gain an extra $8K in salary 20 years before retirement bring home an extra $160K in earnings. And those teachers may also receive a higher pension by finishing their careers at an advance salary level. Compare that to the educator who achieves that goal 10 years later: $80K less income. See what credit accrual could mean for you by using our salary calculator. Be sure to check our course bundles that let you accrue credits at less cost and on a pay-as-you-learn plan.
