**One common question with provisional teachers is: "How many points do I need for my license?" As a provisional teacher with a Level 1 license upgrading to a Level 2--you do not need any points. Once you have your Level 2 license, you will need to go ahead and start collecting licensure points for renewal. If you NEED to renew your Level 1 license for any reason--you will need 100 points to do this. Teachers should keep their certificates and document hours spent in trainings/classes for their own record of completion.
