Strong Support Keeps Us Moving Forward! 

Our National Board Certification programs are continuing because of their strong support from our Professional Learning Facilitators  as well as the support of NYS Teacher Centers, NBPTS, NYSED, BOCES, local school districts and dedicated NBCTs.

The National Board Certification process has changed to be more flexible. Now there are only 4 components and you have up to 3 years to submit. We will be hosting Regional Awareness Sessions to update NBCTs, teachers, administrators and union leaders about these changes.


Most candidates participate in a NBC Support Group or Cohort.  Cohorts are group of candidates pursuing board certification who are guided by a facilitator.  Facilitators have extensive training to provide ethical support.
