Renewal Requirements for Wyoming Educator License or Permit

All Wyoming educators are required to complete Professional Development/Renewal Credits in order to renew a license or permit. Renewal requirements vary depending on the type of license or permit an applicant holds. The requirements for renewing your specific license or permit are listed on the reverse side of the license or permit itself. Please review your license or permit prior to submitting a renewal application to ensure you have met all renewal requirements for your specific license or permit type.
