• Teacher Certification

    The Herkimer-Fulton-Hamilton-Otsego BOCES has been authorized by the New York State Education Department’s Office of Teaching Initiatives to:

    • Evaluate certification applications for Teaching Assistant titles (Level I, Level II, Level III, and Pre-professional)
    • Evaluate license applications for non-teacher Coaches (Temporary and Professional)

    Currently, the Herkimer BOCES’ Regional Certification Office cannot evaluate applications for teacher certification; however, information regarding the requirements and procedures will be provided.
