Teacher Certification

The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) will be releasing The Educator Application and Certification Hub (TEACH) in April! TEACH will replace the current certification application system, which will be shutting down on April 20, 2022. TEACH is expected to be released on April 27, 2022. All Maryland educators will have access to an online Dashboard where they may apply for certification, make payments, download their certificate, access various online services, and update their contact information. 

Existing certificate holders will need to complete a one-time registration by visiting TEACH at https://certificationhub.msde.maryland.gov once the system is released. MSDE will be providing technical support for educators needing assistance during the registration process. Should you need assistance, please email [email protected].
Please see instructions on how to register in TEACH.

Due to the new application’s functionality, the process for submitting certification requests has changed.  Please see Certification Requests for information and instructions.
