What are the three types of certification?

There are three types of certificates: Instructional, Educational Services and Administrative.

Instructional certificates allow the holder to be a classroom teacher.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) certificates allow the holder to teach approved career and technical education programs in grades nine through 12 in all public schools.

Educational Services certificates allow the holder to provide educational support such as counseling, speech language pathology and school nursing services. Administrative certificates allow the holder to provide supervisory and managerial services in the school district such as those provided by the building principal or school administrator.

Under each type of certificate, there are endorsements. The endorsement identifies the specific type of service that the holder is allowed to provide. A candidate who holds an instructional certificate with an endorsement to teach mathematics is allowed to teach mathematics alone.

If the candidate also holds an instructional certificate with an endorsement to teach biological science, the candidate is allowed to teach both mathematics and biological science. Apply for certification on the New Jersey educator certification system ( NJEdCert ), which has replaced the Teacher Certification Information System (TCIS).

The following lists include all the endorsements currently issued in New Jersey. Information pertaining to the certificates may be found on the N.J.A.C.6A:9B, State Board of Examiners and Certification administrative code webpage.

Is IT hard to pass a Microsoft exam?

Step 5: Relax. – At this point, you are probably ready to either laugh at me or hunt me down. I have spent paragraphs going over how difficult Microsoft exams are, and now I am telling you to relax. Seriously? Seriously. It is possible to pass Microsoft exams, and occasionally even pass them on the first try.

When you finally get in to take an exam, there are a few things to remember: It’s OK to miss a question. In more than 20 years of taking exams, I don’t think I have ever had a perfect score. I know some instructors who have, but I suspect they are either just lucky or geniuses. I am neither but usually pass the exams.

Instructors sometimes joke that if you get a higher score than is necessary to pass, you have wasted time studying too much. OK, that really doesn’t seem particularly funny, but the point is valid — Microsoft exams are pass/fail so missing a few questions isn’t the end of the world.

It’s OK to have no idea what a question is about. Sometimes questions are so out of left field that an experienced professional will not know what they are about. Sometimes questions are poorly worded and difficult to understand. Don’t let that ruin your exam. I know people who have failed an exam because they had no idea what the first two questions were about and got completely flustered.

It didn’t matter that they may have known everything else on the test. It’s OK to guess. There is no penalty for guessing. When you don’t know an answer, try to narrow the options down as much as possible, then pick the answer(s) you think best. If you are not sure, always go with your first choice.

Supposedly there is research that backs this up, but it is just a good rule of thumb. I still remember failing an exam by one question, and I am pretty sure it was because I changed an answer when I was reviewing my answers. I really want that one back. It’s not OK to be sloppy. While you want to relax and not freak out, it is also important to take every question seriously.

Read each question and answer carefully and always look for any keywords or phrases that indicate the meaning of the question. I treat every question as a potential trick question. This makes me pay attention.

How many hours to study for Microsoft Certification?

How Long Does It Take to Get Certified? – Prep time for the exams depends on your current understanding of Office and how quickly you can learn new features. For each application and exam, Microsoft recommends around 150 hours of instruction and hands-on experience.

MOS exams take 50 minutes. “Depending on your ability to comprehend and utilize the software, this can be done relatively quickly,” Procak says. “We had a student take each of the specialist exams within the span of about four weeks. Some people focus on one at a time, and that could be done as quickly as one week to one month depending on the time available to practice and study.” Normally, you would take the exams at an authorized certification center such as Certiport, the leading provider of certification services.

You can find the nearest center at Certiport’s Locator site, Due to precautions for the coronavirus, you can now take the exams online. Certiport is offering its Exams from Home program through June 30, 2021.

Plan admins vs. team managers – Plan admins see analytics data on all learners and teams on the team plan. If you are both a plan admin and a team manager, you can see all learner data in analytics. Learn how to set and change admins and managers for your team plan.

Does certified mean the same as qualified?

Qualification versus Certification: An Interview Consideration by Mychal Ludwig, former Head Editor, previously published 5/29/13 Qualification versus Certification: An Interview Consideration When going through an interview process, whether it’s the traditional all-day or multi-day affair in an academic library, or a phone interview then one or two in-person interviews, most of us have to consider many factors, such as how to dress, or which types of questions to prepare for.

One important one I’d like to bring up is how to shape the discussion over whether or not you fit the job you’re trying to get. More specifically, whether you should emphasize your job certification or job qualification. Qualification means simply whether or not you can do the job being asked. Can I perform the necessary tasks at the level required? Certification is the paper or education or training that is supposed to suggest if you are indeed qualified for a job.

I’d argue that your certification doesn’t necessarily lead to qualification (but let’s hope it does). That said, I think, in an interview situation, that it’s both prudent and probably expected to discuss how you are qualified for the various job tasks ahead of you.

How does this apply to answering questions about yourself during an interview? Well, don’t talk about what’s on your resume, or at least, not in the vague, bullet-list way it’s written. The committee or person(s) interviewing you have this and have read it (hopefully). What you need to do, is discuss how your certification lead to you being qualified for the job.

How getting an MLIS meant taking particular classes, and what’s more, what you did in those classes that lead to the skills you need to use to function in the job you’re seeking. You can skim through a degree without really gaining more than a cursory knowledge of particular topics.

  1. Show your committee what you did to employ those skills in a project or assignment, or in a job or internship.
  2. I’ll leave you with a particularly salient example of the difference between certification and qualification (especially if you like musicals).
  3. Many musical fans out there absolutely hate when stage musicals are adapted for the silver screen.

They complain that producers swap out great singers for great actors who can’t sing. They suggest that quality is being compromised. What they are really suggesting, is that stage musicals generally employ singers who are trained (i.e. have a degree or class work in music) while the actors probably can’t sing at all.

  • This is an argument that suggests that the good singers are certified.
  • But is this really true? Aren’t there stage musicals with bad, but trained singers, and movie musicals that have great actors, who can also sing well? I’d say yes.
  • You can be certified and qualified, or qualified but not certified, or really any combination of these.

I think qualification is the most important regardless of certification, so make sure you emphasize that! Tags: : Qualification versus Certification: An Interview Consideration
