Teacher Certification FAQ's

Many of the following questions are asked and answered in context in various sections of the information on this website. You are encouraged to read the appropriate sections of the site carefully for additional information.

Can I teach in NB if I do not have a BEd? (Bachelor of Education degree)
Can I complete a BEd on-line at any university?
I hold Masters degrees in Science (or other subject). Will this allow me to teach in NB?

Unfortunately, without a BEd , a person is not eligible for a full time teaching certificate and position here in NB.

Note: There are rare cases where if a District has advertised for a qualified teacher and has been unable to fulfill a position, the District may offer a long term supply position or a contract position to an uncertified teacher. That teacher may be granted an Interim Certificate and will be required to fulfill the requirements for a BEd within a prescribed period.

This is a very rare occurrence and usually only applies in highly specialized fields where qualified certified teachers are difficult to access.

What is a Letter of Professional Standing?
I have a few courses that I took years ago, but I did not complete my certificate upgrade. Can these courses still be used?
Why is my certificate Level lower here in NB than it was in Nova Scotia?
Can the NBTA evaluate my transcripts and determine my certificate level?
Can I teach in NB if I do my degree at a University in Maine?

Many of your other questions will be answered in detail by reading the sections of the site that relate to your Certification needs. The NBTA is pleased to offer this website as a service to its members and prospective members.
