When is fingerprinting required?
Fingerprinting is required of ALL applicants for certification that have not previously been printed through the NYSED database.
Where do I go to have my fingerprints taken?

I was fingerprinted in order to do substitute teaching. Do I have to be fingerprinted again for certification?
If you were fingerprinted for certification or public school employment after July 1, 2001, you will not need to be fingerprinted again.
