Announcements: Maintenance of Certification


Maintenance of Certification 


New in 2021 Beginning in 2021, NBCTs will be required to demonstrate their knowledge and skills every five years. This new policy reflects tremendous changes in education since National Board Certification was first introduced. It is also aligned with the movement of 40 state licensure systems to a five-year renewal period. Most importantly, it reflects the National Board’s effort to make certification more affordable and efficient for all teachers, so that that it can become the norm in the profession. Maintenance of Certification will take effect for candidates who certify in 2017 and later. See the video for more information about Maintenance of Certification. You can view the video on the National Board website.
