COVID-19 Update: Emergency COVID-19 Certificate Requirement Deadlines Extended

Effective September 15, 2020, the Emergency COVID-19 certificate requirement deadlines have been extended from September 1, 2020 to September 1, 2021. For example, the application deadline for this one-year emergency certificate is now September 1, 2021. The full list of requirements for the emergency certificate can be viewed on the Emergency COVID-19 webpage and Search Certification Requirements webpage.

Individuals who applied for the Emergency COVID-19 certificate prior to September 15, 2020 will automatically have their certificate requirement deadlines extended from September 1, 2020 to September 1, 2021.

Please note that one of the requirements for the Emergency COVID-19 certificate is to also apply and pay the fee for the non-emergency certificate in the same certificate title as the Emergency COVID-19 certificate, on or before September 1, 2021. For example, if you applied for an Emergency COVID-19 Childhood Education certificate, you also need to apply and pay the fee for the non-emergency certificate in Childhood Education (e.g., Initial Childhood Education certificate).
