Certification for teachers of occupational subjects
If you wish to become a teacher of an occupational subject in the secondary schools of New York State, it is mandatory that you acquire New York State teacher certification in the subject area (occupation) you desire to teach.
Requirements for New York State Teacher Certification
Occupational Experience: The State of New York requires that you have recent and appropriate occupational experience in the specialization to be certified. The number of years required will be determined by your educational preparation as shown below:
High School Diploma or its Equivalent 4
Appropriate Associate Degree 2
Appropriate Baccalaureate Degree 1
About the Exams
The written examination assesses your competencies in the theoretical aspects of the occupation. It is a multiple-choice type examination and you are allowed up to four hours to complete it.
The performance examination is made up of typical jobs from the occupation, and it is intended to assess your manipulative skills. It is administered by examiners who have an established background in the occupation as well as expertise in administering the examination. You are allowed up to four hours to complete the performance examination.
Steps in Validating Your Occupational Experience
- Complete a Work Experience Resume Form, have it notarized, and return in to the Department of Vocational Teacher Preparation.
- Send Work Information Release Form(s) to your former employer(s).
NOTE: You will be given these forms with your matriculation (VTP Supplemental application) packet. Both forms, when returned, will be reviewed by the professional staff of the Vocational Teacher Preparation Department to determine whether your occupational experience is appropriate for entrance into the Vocational Teacher Preparation program.
Upon completion of the matriculation and work verification processes, you will be scheduled to take the Occupation Competency Examination as the final phase of the work validation process. Successful completion of the Occupational Competency Examination will earn you 30 semester hours of college credit. The Occupation Competency Examination may be waived if the student 36 semester hours of appropriate college credit in the occupational area in which teacher certification is sought. If you have 36 semester hours of appropriate college credit, taking the occupational competency examination is optional. Your assigned advisor or the coordinator of the Occupational Competency Examination Program will be happy to supply you with details of the option.

- A schedule sheet stating the date, time, and location of the examination as well as the names of the examiners.
- Directions to the examination site.
Notification of Examination Results
You will receive your results within a week to ten days following the examination. Documentation is submitted to the Office of the Registrar at the close of the semester in order that your official transcripts will reflect 30 semester hours of collegiate credit for completion of the Occupational Competency Examination.
