SSP Induction

All SSPs with an initial license must complete three Induction components during their first year at DPS. In June of the year following your first year at DPS, if you have successfully completed the three components, DPS will issue you an induction certificate, which you will receive by email.

When you apply to the Colorado Department of Education to convert your Initial License to a Professional License, attach the Induction Certificate to your application. Learn more about licensing here.

The three Induction components are:
