This site is provided by the New Brunswick Teachers' Association as a service to teachers and those aspiring to teach in New Brunswick.

The NBTA is NOT the certification body and has no real jurisdiction over the process, however all information on teacher certification on this site has been verified by the New Brunswick Department of Education Office of Teacher Certification.

This site is designed to provide users with information, contacts, application forms and answers to questions related to many aspects of teacher certification in our province.

Your Certification: Getting Started

If you have come to this site, you are probably thinking about some aspect of YOUR teacher certification.

You will need to have access to your university transcripts if you have a question about your current certification status. Remember, your certification status is based on your university qualifications, not other forms of experience or Professional Learning.

If you have taken any additional courses since your undergrad degree(s), you will need to make sure you have a transcript from those sources as well. NOTE: for certification purposes, a course does not 'expire' so if you have coursework that has not been credited toward your current certification, it may be able to be credited toward a certificate upgrade, pending decision from the Office of Teacher Certification.

It is helpful if you can locate your NB Teacher Certification number. Locate this on the upper right corner of your teaching certificate. It is a 7 digit number generated by the office of Teacher Certification and the first two digits are your year of birth. Do NOT confuse this with your employee number...they are two different things. If you cannot find your certificate (which really should be framed, along with your degrees and hung on your classroom wall like all other professionals do!), you can contact the Office of Teacher Certification (registrar or assistant, see below) who will provide it.
