Individualized Plans to Help Teachers Obtain Clear Credentials

The Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) is the State of California agency authorized to issue credentials to California educators and service professionals. The Center for Teacher Innovation (CTI) is a subsidiary of the Riverside County Office of Education, which is a CTC-accredited induction program sponsor.  As such, CTI is authorized to submit clear credential recommendations to CTC for teacher candidates who complete our general education and/or education specialist induction programs.

Credential advisement and support services are included as part of the candidate’s induction experience.  Whether you only need to complete an induction program or whether you also have additional statutory renewal requirements or an expired credential, we provide an individualized completion plan to obtain your California clear teaching credential through CTI.

  • Clear Credential recommendation to CTC
  • Credential Renewal Requirements for a Clear Credential
  • Credential Extension Assistance
  • Induction Eligibility
  • Transfer Documentation
  • Optional University Units
