Credential Registration


Local employing agencies must keep records of appropriate certification for all individuals serving in a position that requires certification.  Education Code Section 44430 requires individuals to register their documents with their employing agency and their county office of education.

In the Spring 2008, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing discontinued the printing of credential documents.  The Commission will only post official credential information online and will no longer provide a paper copy of the document.

The following documents will be accepted for registration:

  1. An original, current and valid document issued prior to Spring 2008.  Photocopies will not be accepted.
  2. A document printed from the Commission’s website.  The county office or school district will verify the authenticity of the document by accessing the Commission’s website.
