Get A Frameable Certificate

Licensed educators (teachers, educational specialists, supervisors, administrators, and Letter of Eligibility holders) may now order a custom, frameable certificate for $50 using TIMS. This certificate is an unofficial copy of the teaching certificate and can be used for display or decorative purposes. Official verification of certification can only be obtained by visiting the Certification page of the PDE website.

After successfully logging in to TIMS, you can begin the process of requesting an unofficial certificate.

  1. Select the "Request Frameable Certificate" button.

  2. Confirm your demographic details are accurate and up to date.

    NOTE: The frameable certificate will be mailed to the “Mailing Address” listed on your demographic details.

  3. Step 2 will list the eligible credentials to select. Please note, only three (3) may be selected per application.

  4. The summary page will allow you to verify the current address on file is accurate and view the credentials for printing. Select "Proceed to Submit."

  5. Choose your payment option (credit card or money order). If you receive an error message before submitting your payment information, wait three (3) hours and then try again.

  6. Checking the status of your application:

    • Incomplete: you started an application but have not yet submitted it.
    • Awaiting Evaluation: the TIMS system has determined your application is complete and is now waiting for staff in our office to review your application by the "awaiting evaluation" date. PDE posts the estimated application processing time at the TIMS log-in screen.

The certificate, a padded certificate holder featuring the state seal, and shipping costs are included.
