In addition to the previously mentioned requirements, instructors must also have a minimum of 20 hours of lecturing and hands-on teaching during the current two-year certification cycle, at least 10 of which must be earned teaching the Certification course. The additional hours may involve mentoring, teaching the Certification Renewal course or a combination of both.
NOTE: Teaching hours as an IC do not count toward recertification.
Teaching hours are automatically tracked by the system when the Lead Instructor enters the teaching hours during the course finalization process. Individual instructors are not responsible for inputting their own teaching hours. Hours are assigned to the first day of the course.
Only Certification or Certification Renewal Course hours can count towards your teaching hours for recertification.
