Step 3: Becoming Permanently Certified

Standard Teaching Certificate

The standard certificate is a permanent certificate issued to a teacher who has met all requirements for state certification. The district/school will request the issuance of a standard teaching certificate upon successful completion of the Provisional Teacher Process (PTP).

Note: A candidate cannot apply for the standard certificate; this certificate is requested by a school district.

To receive a standard certificate, the following must occur:

  1. District/school verified mentoring completion in NJEdCert.
  2. District/school submitted the final summative ratings for each school year in NJEdCert.
  3. Educator completed an Oath of Allegiance via NJEdCert.
