How do I qualify for equivalent standing?
You can submit an Application for Equivalent Standing, along with a fee. To be considered, your courses need to be:
- completed at an approved teacher education institution (that is, completed at a faculty of education of an approved postsecondary institution),
- be in addition to your initial teacher education program required for certification,
- consist of at least 125 hours, and
- contain a concentrated study of teaching methodology appropriate for Ontario curriculum in elementary and/or secondary schools.
Please note: Equivalent Standing is only for approved teacher education coursework completed at an institution outside of Ontario.
