Help in Registering Your Teacher Certification

From Dave Wurz at the RTA office


Continuing Teacher and Leader Education is a law adopted into practice by the Board of Regents. The new law states “all holders of a permanent or professional certificate are subject to registration of their certificates starting July 1st 2016, if you are an active teacher or wishes to return to teaching in any capacity.”

If you are currently teaching, you must register at the link below.

Go to the New York State Government website and register before being able to click on the special “teacher registration” tab. That will take you to another website to register for your teaching certificates. The process is as follows:

Click here to get to the web site.


  1. Click “Create a NY.gov TEACH account”

  2. Check the box “I have not created a TEACH account…”

  3. Click “Create Account”

  4. Fill in requested information

  5. Click “Teach Online Services”

  6. Click ” View Registration Status”

  7. Follow the prompts…


If you’re still finding this process difficult to navigate I would be glad to take any “walk ins”

M, T, TH, and F and register you using my computer in my office.   Contact me, Dave Wurz at: iandb999@aol.com or call the RTA office 546-2681 ext. 123. Thank you again for all you do, Dave.
