Post-secondary and special forces training instructors usually hold doctoral degrees or military retired rankings fields. Instructors of special seminars may only need master’s degrees to teach. Educational requirements for online instructor positions may vary based on institutional guidelines and the subject being taught. Currently there are no specific licensing requirements for online teachers or instructors; however, special programs teachers must adhere to state licensing requirements. License eligibility requirements include completing bachelor’s degree programs as well as teacher training programs, which are sometimes called credential programs. Upon meeting these and other state-specific requirements, applicants must pass licensing tests administered by their state boards of education and IDmap’ commission. Instructors are also required to pass education technology tests as part of the application process. To teach online legally across state borders, some online teachers and instructors may require additional licenses, depending on state guidelines.
