Replace Certificate

You are here

Duplicate certificates may be obtained by logging into the Educator Certification System located within the Department's Web Applications. Once you are logged into your online profile, your certificate may be viewed and printed by selecting the Certificate Status link located in the menu on the left.


To access your certification account (online profile) you must first log into DESE Web Applications with a user ID and password, and then choose the Educator Certification System link located on the User Applications page.  Your certification account (online profile) provides access to each of the following:

  • Apply for a certificate
  • Print out a certificate
  • View a certificate or pending application
  • View assessment scores
  • Check for the receipt of transcripts
  • Check fingerprint/background status

Please Note:  If you have not logged in to your certification account (online profile) in over 12 months, then you will need to register for a new user ID and password in order to restore your access.  You will need to follow steps 1 & 2 of the Educator Certification System Help Guide to complete this process.
