National Board Certification is the highest credential in the teaching profession. Certification is achieved through a rigorous performance-based assessment that takes between one and three years to complete and measures what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do.
      
A successful candidate must have completed and submitted all required portfolio entries and assessment center exercises and meet the performance standard. National Board Certification is issued for a period of 10 years, after which a National Board Certification Teacher will have the opportunity to maintain his or her standing as a National Board Certified Teacher by satisfying a renewal requirement.
