Certification and PGP

Note: Questions about an individual's certificate or testing status should be directed to the OSPI Certification office

PGPs play a significant role in obtaining and renewing an educator credential, and while PESB defines certification policy for all educators, 
OSPI's Certification Office implements that policy for individual educators. These pages focus on PESB policy responsibilities. The Certification Office website provides information for individuals with questions about their own licensure.
