About Clock Hours

Clock hours are required for most teachers, administrators and ESE certificate holders in Washington State. Clock hours may be earned for salary placement and may also be required to maintain certification. ESD 112 is an approved clock hour provider in Washington State. If professional development is offered by an outside agency, it is important to check that the agency is approved by OSPI to provide clock hours in Washington. If not, the professional development hours may not be used for certificate maintenance or salary purposes. Certificates of completion are not valid forms of clock hour documentation. If your district is a member of the ESD 112 Clock Hour Coop, you may submit your clock hour in-service form from an outside provider to us and we will manually add the clock hours to your pdEnroller transcript. Outside providers do not use pdEnroller so they will not issue a claim code.

Teacher Certificate Renewal Information:

*Beginning July 1, 2023, teacher and administrator certificate renewal applications must include evidence of professional learning focused on equity-based school practices (HB 1426).  Teachers must complete 15 clock hours focused on equity-based school practices. Administrators must complete 10 clock hours on equity-based school practices, 10 clock hours on educational leadership standards, and five hours on government-to-government relations with tribal nations

*There is currently a 15 clock hour STEM requirement for educators that hold a STEM-related endorsement.

In the ESD 112 region, we have many districts that are members of our Clock Hour Cooperative and participants from these districts do not pay for clock hours. Click here for a list of member districts.

The clock hour process is entirely online. ESD 112 maintains all required clock hour records for seven years.

Clock hour official transcripts are available to print at no charge via your pdEnroller account located in the Clock Hours menu.

Clock Hours FAQ

If the course is sponsored by an ESD, school district or college/university in Washington, chances are very good it is approved for clock hours. If taking classes from outside agencies, make sure they are either approved through the Professional Educator Standards Board to provide clock hours, or the training has been co-sponsored by an ESD in Washington. Washington does not accept CEUs, contact hours or certificates of completions for clock hour maintenance.

An official clock hour form or official clock hour transcript is needed for proper clock hour documentation.

Yes, one quarter credit is equal to 10 clock hours, and one semester credit is equal to 15 clock hours. College transcripts must be submitted to the school district as they cannot be added to a clock hour transcript. You cannot earn both clock hours and college credits for the same class. You must manually enter these hours into your OSPI/EDS account.

Most teachers, administrators and educational staff associates are required to earn 100 clock hours every five years for certificate maintenance. Many certificates now require 15 STEM clock hours for certification maintenance. See the STEM Q & A  for more information.  Starting July 1, 2023, teachers and administrators will need to show proof of completion of equity-based school practices clock hours in order to renew their certificates. Visit the OSPI website for more details.

No, your district pays us to record your clock hours.  It is your responsibility to get your documentation to ESD 112 for recording.  We will record all official clock hours on your ESD 112 transcript. We do not accept certificates of completion.

If you want to record your clock hours on an ESD 112 transcript, there is a fee of $3 per clock hour or a flat fee of $5 for a non-ESD 112 course. Forms and payment should be sent to ESD 112. Transcripts are accessible through your pdEnroller account.
