Welcome to Montana Educator Licensing

.

On July 15, 2021, The Office of Public Instruction requested that the Board of Public Education (BPE) extend all Class 5, Class 5A, and Third Year internships that expired on 6/30/21 for one year due to the impacts from COVID-19 during the 2020-21 school year. Montana educators have been contacting the OPI requesting extensions for reasons relating to the pandemic. This request was approved by the BPE and is for a one-year expiration extension for our Montana provisional license holders and third-year internships that are set to expire on 6/30/2021. The new expiration date is 6/30/2022.

We are in the process of issuing the new licenses, if you do not receive yours in the next few weeks, please contact the Educator Licensure Unit at cert@mt.gov.

Specifically, this addresses:

  • Class 5 (3-year provisional license)
  • Class 5A (1-year provisional license)
  • Third-year internships (internships are issued in one-year intervals for a total of three-years)
