EC30 Online

Online Practising Certificate Renewal

The EC30 online renewal process is now live. That means that teachers in schools with an Education Sector logon can now apply to renew their full practising certificates online.

If you’re ready to submit an EC30 application to renew a full practising certificate, you can get started here. It takes about 10 minutes to apply. All you’ll need to start your application is an Education Sector logon and your registration number. 

For more information about logging in, have a look at the Ministry's login guide

Here’s a sample of the feedback we received from teachers who have applied using this new process:

  • “Fantastic process. So easy and convenient.”
  • “The online renewal process was a breeze… I thought it was awesome.”
  • “This was an easy and efficient way to do my renewal. I think it was an excellent way to go through the process. Life is very busy and this made life much easier.”

Information for principals/professional leaders

This new online process comes with a new endorsement process for principals/professional leaders. The Proof of Identity (POI) requirements that you have been checking on paper can now be done online. As a principal/professional leaders, we’re relying on you to assert a teacher’s identity. Please don’t delegate this to someone else. You only need to do this once for each teacher.

Once you've completed the training module for endorsers (10 minutes), log on to the Confirmation Dashboard to get started. If you need a refresher on endorsing applications, have a look at our EC30 online guide for principals/professional leaders.
