Certification Contacts

NYSUT Education & Learning Trust cannot advise you as to which courses you should take to fulfill your specific certification requirements. For that reason, we have compiled a list of certification contacts and links. Please contact the NYS Education Department Office of Teaching Initiatives if you need clarification of your individual certification needs or if seeking to fulfill specific certification competency areas.
