TIMS Login Instructions for Personal Users
We highly recommend using Internet Explorer or Firefox to access TIMS. Chrome and Safari users experience technical difficulties, which includes payment processing issues.
Go to www.education.pa.gov
Hover over "Educators" in the upper horizontal navigation.
Select "Certification" from the drop-down menu.
Select the green "TIMS Educator Online Certification System" box in the middle of the page
Determine if you are accessing TIMS as a PERSONAL USER or a PROVISONED USER. Note: Personal Users are generally applying for certification, accessing personal records, and printing personal certifications.
Select the "Visit this page to login to TIMS link" to access the online application system. Please review the help resources available on this page prior to logging in for the first time.
After you've selected the login link, you'll be taken to a new screen, which is MyPDESuite. If you need to register for a username and password, select "Register."
Helpful Hint: MyPDESuite will only work if you access it from the "TIMS – For Personal Users" landing page.
After registration, you will return to the login page to enter your Username and Password and select "Login." If you have problems with the login screen, your username, and/or passwords, contact the Help Desk: (717) 783-1087.
The first time you login with your username and password, you will need to establish your TIMS profile
You are now on your TIMS dashboard (aka the TIMS homepage).
