Get Certified

Kentucky teacher certification is based upon the completion of a teacher preparation program that includes student teaching and testing when applicable. Kentucky requires a recommendation from the certification official at the college/university (where the applicant completed his/her initial teacher preparation program) regarding the specific teacher preparation program completed, grade level, degree level, and completion date of the program.
