TEMC does not play any part in the certification process, except in administering the NOCTI Written tests above. For all other questions, please contact the agency that would be awarding the certificate.

TEMC orders NOCTI exams only in response to demand; therefore, we order the test materials after payment has been made and all other necessary information has been submitted. Requests should be submitted at least 7-10 business days prior to the date you wish to test. Score reports are usually available 3-6 business days after testing.

To request a NOCTI Teacher Test, please complete the NOCTI Request Form.

The fee for taking a NOCTI test is $150. A link to make your payment online will be sent upon submission of the email request.

The time limit for all NOCTI Written Teacher Tests is 3 hours.

NOCTI does not provide or sell any sort of study guide for their Teacher Tests, but they do publish "blueprints" which provide a basic overview of each test. These can be downloaded here.

Questions not answered above should be sent to
