National Board Certification - New Candidates for 22-23 

National Board Certification is the most respected professional certification available in education and provides numerous benefits to teachers, students and schools. It was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide.  While teacher licensure systems set the basic requirements to teach in each state, completion of National Board Certification signifies that teachers have voluntarily gone much further. NBCTs have developed and demonstrated the advanced knowledge, skills and practices required of an outstanding educator.  Standards for each content area and developmental level are created by teachers, for teachers.

All 2022-2023 classes will be online. To find out more information about National Board Certification, visit  To register for the 22-23 Cohort, click here.
