About Connecticut Educator Certification
Our goal is to determine the simplest path to certification so you can serve Connecticut students in your chosen area. In this role, we process over 26, 000 applications each year. Last year we issued over 35, 000 certificates and permits.
The online Connecticut Educator Certification System (C.E.C.S.) allows you to check the status or print unofficial copies of your certificates and permits, apply and pay fees online, and get up-to-the-minute information about your application(s).
