The application and necessary documents are available only in the regional Certification Commission.

All documents for certification and/or assignment of qualification category to be filled by the employer. If you combine work in several educational institutions, these documents can be issued and provide the Commission with several employers.

- Information on the results of your previous attestations (copy).

If you don't have categories or you are coming to the end of the 5-year validity of the previous category then you can apply independently to the regional Certification Commission. You can apply only if previous certification has passed not less than 2 years, or you work in the same place also, at least 2 years.
Attach to the application a standard package of documents (portfolio) and list the results of the previous appraisals (if they were). Complete the new certification sheet to the paragraph specified in the rules of registration.
Please note that not later than in a month you will need to receive a notification, certified by the commission members, about the date, place and time of the certification test.
The test takes place at the meeting of the Commission in the form of expertise and professional accomplishments of the teacher. If you want to attend this meeting, please indicate this in your application by assigning the category.
As a result of the test, a decision is made to assign or refuse to assign a category. The original of the certification sheet with the results of passing the tests is sent to the employer.
If you already have a "first" category, but you were denied the assignment of the "highest" category, then the action of the "first" is retained until the established deadlines.
You can appeal the decision of the Attestation Commission. Contact the provincial Department of education, the labor disputes Commission or the court. If you decided to go to court, then the application can be submitted within 3 months from the date of the decision by the Commission.
