Online Certification Application
Thank you for your certification application. In order to complete your application submission, you will need to pay the required fees and may need to send us any/all of the following documents.
-College/University Transcripts (for all Initial and some Renewals and Reinstatements)
-CDA/CDAE/FCCPC Certificate (for all Initial Early Education applicants)
-Master Inservice Program Transcript (for all Renewals and Reinstatements)
-Philosophy of Christian Education Proof (if completed and not submitted before)
Any/all of the above that are necessary should be submitted electronically by scanning the documents and uploading them to the FACCS Certification Office through our upload page by selecting the link in the right navigation bar or click here.
For College/University transcripts, they MUST be scanned from the original transcript on file at your school and MUST be signed by the School Administrator indicating such. Please mark-out your Social Security number if it is on the transcript.
We prefer PDF format, however we will also accept graphic formats (jpg, png, tif, gif, tiff) for single page files only. We do not accept MS Word or other word processing files.
Our office does not use a fax machine, so we cannot accept faxes.
If you do not have scanning capabilities, you may elect to mail your documents to the Office of Program Services (address at the bottom of the page) - however this will add at least 2 weeks to the processing of your application. Send via Standard or Priority Mail (do not send Express or Certified) to the PO Box only.
If you wish to go ahead and pay your fees online or get information on where to mail payment, click here.
