Photography Instructors

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

All 50 states and the District of Columbia require public school teachers to be licensed by the board of education in the state where they will be working. Licensing is generally not required for teachers in private schools. Photography instructors in self-enrichment programs such as those sponsored by community centers or photography studios are not required to be licensed, but proof of expertise and advanced training in the field may be necessary. Some community centers might require their instructors to be CPR-certified and undergo a criminal background check.
