Do You Qualify for A Vocational Teaching License?

There’s a decent chance you might! Career and technical teaching licenses come in several varieties. They don’t necessarily require higher education, but do require 5,000 hours of work experience.

What kind of work experience? It depends on the area of endorsement. Montana will license vocational teachers for:

  • Agriculture Business, Marketing, and Communications
  • Agriculture Mechanics
  • Auto Body
  • Automotive Technology
  • Aviation
  • Building Maintenance
  • Building Trades
  • Computer Coding
  • Computer Information Systems
  • Culinary Arts
  • Diesel Mechanics
  • Drafting
  • Electronics
  • Emergency Medical Technician
  • Engineering
  • Fire and Disaster Services
  • Graphic Arts
  • Health Science Education
  • Heavy Equipment Operations
  • Horticulture
  • Industrial Mechanics
  • Livestock Production
  • Machining
  • Metals
  • Plant and Soil Sciences
  • ROTC
  • Small Engines
  • Stagecraft
  • Teacher Education
  • Traffic Education
  • Videography
  • Welding

For each area, there are a long list of possible jobs that would qualify. Health Science has a list of 32 different careers, ranging from Athletic Trainers, to Nurses and Veterinarians. This isn’t something limited to the formally employed. Self-Employment is also viable, though documentation appears somewhat more complex.

Unlike most teaching licenses, the vocational license does not require a teaching degree (except for teaching teacher education). The subjects are so broad, the career possibilities so many, that it seems likely that many people qualify for a teaching license of this type.

Trego School is looking for people that do, to teach a vocational skill for 2 hours a week. Ultimately, there is only one school for which children must prepare, and only one teacher. That school is the world and that teacher is experience. Vocational Education is an essential component for preparing children for the world.
