Certification Fees

Fees can be paid through the Certemy online application (except the background check fee that will be paid to a third-party agency, with instructions provided in the application). Under some circumstances, applicants may be required to pay by check, which can be mailed to the Tennessee Certification Board. Applicants will not be certified until all fees are paid.
