Getting Started with National Board Certification
Mentoring starts each fall in September, but new candidates join us throughout the year until February! We provide a FREE National Board Certified Mentor. We have face-to-face mentoring sites in Tupelo, Oxford, Southaven, and Grenada and online mentoring. We place all our candidates in our step-by-step candidate support course, WCTP 601.
The state of Mississippi will reimburse all first time candidates. You set YOUR pace: 1, 2, or 3 years! We even have suggested timelines and assignments. What do you need to do to get started?
