NCSBE Licensure Testing Requirements
The North Carolina State Board of Education (NCSBE) approved licensure exam(s) must be passed to be eligible for hire and to earn your teaching license. There are two types of subject-specific licensure exams used for testing requirements in North Carolina: Praxis II Testing and Pearson Testing. You must take the specific content area test in the subject area in which you are seeking licensure. You may take additional content area tests to meet federal highly qualified status. This is highly recommended as it increases your marketability as a candidate for a teaching position.
