Registration FAQs

Anyone who holds a position in which a Saskatchewan teacher’s certificate is required for employment within the publicly funded school system must register with the SPTRB. Additionally, some employers outside of the publicly funded system may require their teachers to be registered with the SPTRB.

The Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board (SPTRB) is an independent organization charged with the responsibility of regulating the teaching profession in Saskatchewan. The SPTRB is the provincial system of record for teaching credentials. The SPTRB, as do all other self-regulated professions, requires annual registration. The annual registration process requires registrants who wish to practice the profession (as outlined in question number 1)  to provide up to date contact information to the SPTRB and to answer a series of disclosure statements. Most professional regulatory bodies also charge an annual registration fee during the registration process. This fee serves as the primary source of revenue for the regulatory body. 

If you currently do not have an employer, you can select the Other option. Once you do have an employer, please sign in to your SPTRB account to update your employment information. You can access this by clicking Educator Profile once you have signed in to your SPTRB account.

Yes, substitute teachers must register with the SPTRB. If needed, you can add multiple employing school divisions to your record under the Employer field. You are not required to provide specific school assignments but you must indicate you are a substitute teacher.

You are not required to register if you are retiring. You may register in order to stay up-to-date and in contact with the SPTRB. However, if you choose to do any substitute teaching, you must be registered.

You are not required to register if you are not teaching/working. You must be registered prior to your return to the classroom at any time throughout the year.

You can request a password reset if you do not remember your password. This will be sent to the email address you entered or the email we have on file for you.
