DIRECT Training Registration
This training is provided solely for new CTE work-based teachers certified through the South Carolina Department of Education and employed as teachers in a South Carolina public high school or career center.
This registration is for the DIRECT teacher training program only. Entry into the DIRECT teacher training program does not guarantee an individual's ability to acquire CTE work-based certification. The application for CTE work-based certification is a separate process. Additional certification information can be found at https://ed.sc.gov/educators/teaching-in-south-carolina/cte/. Qualified candidates will be issued a Letter of Eligibility (LOE).
The employing South Carolina public school district must complete a Confirmation of Employment (COE). The form is available to districts only through the Certification Portal System (CPS). Receipt of the completed COE triggers the issuance of an Induction certificate.
South Carolina Regulation, R 43-50, requires each individual employed in an instructional, classroom teaching position or who serves in a position designed for the support of the instructional program in a public school of this state must hold an appropriate South Carolina teaching credential.
