CTC Credential Record

Before a candidate can participate in any classroom placement, they must have received moral fitness clearance from the CTC. That means that a CoC or other credential or permit must be ISSUED by the Commission in the student’s name prior to the beginning of ANY student teaching course. It is best to complete the process as soon as possible after beginning the program as some school sites may require the student to have CTC clearance to visit their campus.

If you have already completed the CTC Clearance Process:

Provide the Credential Office with a PDF/screen shot of your CTC credential record by uploading the PDF/screen shot document to TaskStream. Appropriate documents include your CTC credential record indicating credentials issued such as a:

a) Certificate of Clearance (CoC)

b) 30-Day Substitute Permit

c) Children’s Center Permit

d) Activity Supervision Clearance Certificate

e) Variable Term Waiver

Remember that this is an admissions requirement.

You must supply the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI with your fingerprints by the Live Scan process, using the appropriate CTC forms.

You can contact the DOJ on the web at http://ag.ca.gov/fingerprints/publications/contact.php for information about sites which offer the Live Scan service in the Bay Area.
