For any teaching certification you list on your profile, The Aspire Registry requires that you upload a copy of your teaching certificate issued by the NYS Department of Education, or the appropriate department in another state. If you do not have a copy of your NYS teaching certificate to upload, you may also submit a screenshot of your TEACH account with the list of certifications you hold. If you are mailing in your documents you may submit photocopies of these items.
Please note: The Aspire Registry cannot use certification exam results or certificates issued by your college or university to verify teaching certification.
Child Development Associate and other Credentials
For any credential you list on your Aspire Profile, The Aspire Registry requires that you upload a copy of the actual credential issued by the awarding institution. For instance, if you have earned your Child Development Associate Credential you would need to upload a copy of the credential you were given from the Council for Professional Recognition. If you are mailing in your documents you may submit a photocopy of your credential.
Please note: The Aspire Registry cannot use coursework or transcripts to verify a Credential.
