An extension may be requested only when a candidate has not completed all of the preliminary credential requirements by the expiration date, and also has a valid reason for not doing so. Extensions are granted by the CTC on a case-by-case basis, and if granted, the credential will be extended for one year. For more information visit the CTC website.
