Certification Application Fees
Effective September 1, 2016, the SPTRB is implementing a simplified fee structure for certification applications. Fees related to applications for certification will be consolidated into a one-time, non-refundable application fee paid at the time of application submission.
SK B.Ed. graduates $105 (including GST)
SK Pre-B.Ed. Assessment* $210 (including GST)*
Canadian B.Ed. graduates $210 (including GST)
International B.Ed. graduates $420 (including GST)
*SK Pre-B.Ed Assessment Fee includes:
• an assessment of credentials prior to being awarded a B.Ed. degree; and
• a Professional A teaching certificate (when all requirements are met)
Applicants with an approved undergraduate degree and at least 48 semester hours of pre-service teacher education coursework (must include a completed practicum and specific courses required for certification) may apply for assessment for certification prior to completing their B.Ed. program in Saskatchewan. At the time of application, teacher candidates may request a Pre-B.Ed. assessment by indicating such on the application and paying the associated fee. The fee includes the SK B.Ed. graduate application fee ($105) and the SK Pre-B.Ed. Assessment fee ($105) for a total of $210.
Applicants requesting the SK Pre-B.Ed. Assessment and who meet requirements for certification will be issued a permanent Professional A teaching certificate. Applicants who do not meet requirements for certification will have their application held until proof of completion of a B.Ed. is received; at which point a permanent Professional A teaching certificate will be issued.
Please note that all fees, including the SK Pre-B.Ed. fee are non-refundable.
As such, applicants are asked to be familiar with certification requirements prior to requesting the SK Pre-B.Ed. assessment. For more details about certification requirements for applicants enrolled in a Saskatchewan teacher education program, refer to Saskatchewan Teacher Education Program Graduate.
Applicants who have previously paid an assessment fee as part of their application, will NOT be required to pay the new application fee. However, they will be required to pay a certification fee of $105 when they meet certification requirements.
Any applications submitted to the Ministry of Education prior to October 19, 2015 will be reviewed on a case by case basis by the SPTRB regarding fees.
