  • Is a GaPSC certificate required in Georgia?
    Yes. Any professional serving in the public schools must hold a valid certificate appropriate to the field of employment. All certificate fields are classified as Teaching, Service or Leadership.

  • How long will it take for my certificate application to be processed?
    Your application package will be processed as quickly as possible from the time all materials are received by the GaPSC. Based on your file, you will receive an educator certificate, a letter of eligibility or an evaluation for certification requirements to be met.

  • Why must I always submit a new application?
    In order to process any certification requests, you must submit a new application to create a case in the certification database. Although previous documentation submitted will remain on file, a case is not created without the application form. In addition, the GaPSC requires a current signature in the Personal Affirmation Section.
