Teacher Licensing Requirements:

Under Title 10, U.S.C., Chapter 102, Section 2033, Army JROTC has the authority to certify officers or NCOS as instructors. However, AJROTC instructors are school district employees. As such, states and/or districts may require additional licensure or certification beyond AJROTC certification.

To facilitate your transition from military service member to instructor, HQ AJROTC is providing the information below for your review and consideration. States continually revise teacher certification / licensure requirements, and some districts within a state may apply those rules more stringently than others. Accordingly, the information contained herein is merely intended to help guide you in your process of researching specific teaching requirements for those states you are interested in teaching in.

Because licensing requirements vary by state and district, HQ AJROTC cannot provide more detailed information and encourage you to conduct a thorough investigation into what licensing or certification requirements may be expected of you prior to signing any school employment contract.
