Certification Benchmarks for All Roles

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

There are three levels of certification benchmarks:
  • Residency - for the pre-service and beginning educators. PGPs for program completion are aligned to the residency level benchmarks.
  • Professional - for developing inservice educators.
  • Career - for experienced educators. PGPs for certificate renewal are aligned to the career level benchmarks.
