Certification Evaluation Process

The OSSTF/FEESO Certification Department evaluates a teacher's academic and technological credentials according to the Regulations of the Certification Plan and then issues Certification Rating Statements.

All inquiries, course approvals and re-evaluations must be accompanied by a completed application form.
