    Career and Technical Teacher Education


    Many of the courses for the CTE major also apply toward Indiana Career and Technical Director licensing and to Cooperative Education license endorsements for those licensed in Indiana under Bulletin 400, Rules 46 & 47, or Rules 2002.

    Workplace Specialist Teacher Certification


    The above is an alternate licensing pattern for teachers for program areas related to specific occupational areas that is based primarily on work experience in that area and not on college teacher preparation.  This is only for those teaching Career and Technical (Vocational) trade programs in Indiana.
