Reissue of Certification


Individuals who hold Child Care Services (CCS) Certification in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) may reissue their certification for the following reasons:
1.    A change in level* and/or a change in classification
2.    A change in the official name.
Change of level occurs when an individual graduates from a recognized post-secondary program (certificate/diploma/degree) after they have been certified.
Change of classification occurs when individuals successfully complete individual courses from a recognized post-secondary institution or orientation courses after they have been certified.
Keep in mind:
  •  If the reissue of certification adds Child Care Centre - Trainee Level to an existing certification then an acceptance letter into an ECE program from a recognized college will be required before the reissue of certification can be issued.
  • After reissue, a certificate’s “valid until” date will remain the same as the individual’s current valid certificate term, unless a trainee level certification is added to other levels individual holds.
Check the Reissue of Child Care Services Certification guide on how to apply and what required documentation is needed.
How to achieve a certain level and/or classification please check under Resources the Educational Pathway for NL Child Care Services Certification.
