Teacher Certification/Licensure Guidance/Adult Permit Codes
Adult education instructors are required to possess either the adult permit or a teaching license issued by the Ohio Department of Education that is valid for the course(s) they teach. Instructors that possess a valid teaching license do not need to obtain the adult permit.
The Adult Permit application can be downloaded from the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) website. It is available for a one-year or four-year time period. The application contains information regarding fee, BCI/FBI background check requirements and general directions.
