Each license has various requirements for renewal, which include either 125 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for the renewal of a five-year license or 75 PDUs for a three-year license.
You can earn PDUs by completing college courses, attending workshops and conferences, or participating in other learning activities intended to increase your effectiveness as an educator. Most school districts verify continuing PDUs for their employees by submitting a TSPC PEER form.
PDUs are calculated as follows:
1 hour of continuing PDU activity = 1 PDU;
1 semester hour of college credit = 30 PDUs.
PDUs must include activities intended to increase the effectiveness as an educator. PDU activities must fall within one of seven Standards for Professional Learning.
