Frequently Asked Questions about the New Mexico Public Education Department


  • I wish to add a technology endorsement to my teaching license.  What are the requirements?

There are two endorsements available in New Mexico in the area of technology -- information technology coordinator and technology education.  To add either of the endorsements, you are required to have earned a minimum of 24 semester hours.  If you’re adding the endorsement to an elementary or special education license, the hours can be lower division.  If you’re adding to a PreK-12, middle level or secondary license, 12 of the 24 semester hours must be upper division level (300 and above).  Please note that there is also an alternative route for completing the information technology coordinator endorsement. 

You can access the application for adding an endorsement by clicking http://www.ped.state.nm.us/licensure/dl08/endorsement.pdf.
