All candidates must complete a comprehensive Building Leadership Practicum ePortfolio consisting of a minimum of 150 hours (# of hours can be increased to meet particular states' requirements) of documented clinical work as a part of their final comp exam. For Kansas licensure, candidates must take the Praxis SLLA Exam #6011.
