Online Cert Process

Hello!

I am working towards getting my AK teaching License. I already have a valid out-of-state WA teaching license and have done some research on both ATP and EED websites for completing the application process. My question: Is there a way to fill the application out online (and attach the additional information) or do I need to print and mail it in?

This is the form I found to fill out:
https://education.alaska.gov/teachercertification/forms/Initial_Out_of_State.pdf

Thanks!
K

Hello,

There is no way to do it entirely online that I am aware of. The application pages have to be enclosed in a single packet or USPS flat rate envelope. The original forms have to be signed, fingerprint cards inked and submitted, etc...it's not a process that lends itself easily to just filling out the information into submission boxes, I'm afraid. The video of the ATP live chat with EED Teacher Certification Manager from Alaska EED two weeks ago includes a great deal of information about the process, tips and tricks, do's and don'ts.

Hope this helps,

John

I went through this process 4 years ago and it was extremely extensive. Make sure to give yourself several months to complete all components thoroughly THE FIRST TIME. They will send everything back if one tiny piece of the pie is missing.

I had to print and mail in. I would send certified mail so you know when it was received.
