WHAT IS NEEDED TO RENEW A PROFESSIONAL CLEAR CREDENTIAL
To renew a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, Services, and Specialist Professional Clear Credential, you must complete the following three requirements at five-year intervals:
Complete an individual program of professional growth activities that consists of a minimum of 150 clock-hours of participation in activities that contribute to competence, performance, or effectiveness in the profession of education. This requirement is referred to as the professional growth requirement.
Serve successfully in a certificated position or in another professional capacity in a public or private preschool, elementary school, middle school, or secondary school for the equivalent of at least one-half of a school year. This requirement is referred to as the professional service requirement.
Submission of Materials
Submit to the Commission a completed Renewal & Reissuance Application form (41-REN) with the self-verification section completed and the current processing fee. You do not need to submit the Professional Growth Plan and Record or the Verification of Successful Service forms with your application for renewal; however, the Commission reserves the right to request submission of these forms for auditing purposes any time within one year following submission of the application.
The key to the professional clear renewal is working with a professional growth advisor. The advisor serves as your mentor, helping you to set goals that will be valuable to your growth. The advisor also discusses professional growth activities that will contribute to your competence, performance, or effectiveness as an educator. The advisor verifies you have completed your professional growth activities.

Why choose CE Credits Online
How CE Credits Online courses satisfy the individual program of professional growth activities
You may complete one or more college or university courses.
Acceptable courses include lower division, upper division, or graduate level courses offered on campus, off campus, or through extension by any regionally-accredited two-year or four-year college or university, in California or outside of this state. Courses may be taken for college credit. Courses must be completed, and the credential holder must earn a grade of C or better in courses that are taken for credit (or a pass in courses taken on a “pass or fail” basis). Clock-hours recorded on the Plan and Record form are restricted to time spent in class, time spent in laboratory or discussion sections that are associated with the class, and time spent on out-of-class assignments that you and your professional growth advisor agree would qualify as activities in categories 2 through 7. For example, you could record time spent on an individual study that was part of a college course, provided you examine a specified topic, produce a written report or other tangible product, and evaluate the individual project and its product. If time spent seated in the classroom is longer than the times listed in the conversion table, an explanation will be needed. Required lab work is an example of when extra time might be recorded. Time spent completing routine out-of-class assignments, such as reading assignments or preparing for tests, may not be recorded.
Once you complete your selected CE Credits Online course you may request university credits from Humboldt State University.
