Option 1 - Apply for a one-year conditional license for $85. During the term of the one-year license, take 6 credits if you held a Standard license or 4 credits if you held a Master Educator license. You may teach while this license is in force! (If you already have some credits, the BOEE will count ones taken during the previous 5 years.) Then you can apply for a regular 5-year license.
Option 2 -Take the credits first - but you cannot teach as you have no license in force! Again, credits will be counted for the 5 years prior to your application. You will then be issued a 5-year license.
The benefit of the former option is the license is issued right way and you can teach. The benefit of the latter option is you save the additional $85.
