Licensure Requirements

Licensure Testing Requirements

Students are required to achieve passing scores on assessments prescribed by the VA State Board of Education, both for program completion and for licensure. Information about testing requirements can be found on the Office of Teacher Education and Professional Services website.

First Aid, CPR and AED Training Licensure Requirement

Students seeking licensure in Virginia will need to complete training in emergency first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and the use of automated external defibrillators.  Students will need to provide documentation of completion of this training, which is usually an official card.  Training courses are offered by the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association.
