Certification Offerings
Regional Certification Office

The Erie 1 BOCES Regional Certification Office provides assistance, and processes / evaluates the online applications of candidates for New York State Certification in most teaching titles, and for all pupil personnel and coaching titles.

Our regular business hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00-4:00.

While we are pleased to assist school personnel with certification, please remember that 
your certification is your responsibility

Be sure that you know when your current certification expires, and what is required to achieve and maintain the next level of certification. Your current / potential employment in the New York State Public Schools requires that you hold valid NYS Certification!
