Jump Start Series

OEA's National Board Jump Start is a comprehensive, multi-day seminar designed to provide National Board candidates with important information about the certification process, time to examine component and Assessment Center requirements, the opportunity to plan how to meet requirements, and time to collaborate, gather resources and information needed to pursue certification. All this happens in a supportive, constructive, and collegial environment led by Oregon and Washington National Board Certified Teachers. This summer, Jump Start will take place fully online!

There are six seminar modules that complete the full suite of the Jump Start Seminar series. OEA highly recommends that you complete the entire full suite in the series. (TSPC reimbursement for the cost of the Jump Start Seminar and participation in the OEA NBC Opportunity Grant require completion of a full suite of modules.).

Participants will receive 30 PDUs for completing a full suite of modules.
