OPI Renewal Units

Each FVCC college credit counts as 15 OPI renewal units for teacher recertification because FVCC is a regionally accredited educational institution.  For full licensure information, teachers should visit the Office of Public Instruction.

Glacier Institute also provides classes which are OPI approved for renewal units through FVCC.
