VirtualSC PD offers renewal and graduate courses to assist South Carolina certified educators with renewing their teaching licenses. All VirtualSC PD courses are pre-approved by the Office of Educator Services and count as a technology credit. Anyone who holds a South Carolina teaching certificate that has not been expired for more than 10 years would qualify to take VirtualSC PD courses – regardless of whether or not currently employed in a school district. Our renewal level courses range from 40-60 renewal credits each and our graduate level courses are 3 graduate credits each, which is 60 renewal credits.
At the conclusion of an VirtualSC PD renewal course you will receive official documentation that you can submit to the Office of Educator Services or your district to add the renewal credits to your certificate. Graduate courses are offered in conjunction with the College of Charleston and official transcripts can be ordered to show completion of any of the graduate courses. For information on the documentation that you will receive, please visit the transcripts button in the menu above.
While all of our courses are pre-approved for renewal and graduate credits, it is still recommended that you contact the Office of Educator Services to verify which types of courses you need to fulfill your renewal requirements.
