Frequently Asked Questions


I completed studies that I think are equivalent to an AQ.  How do I get these recognized on my record?

You can submit an Application for Equivalent Standing, along with a fee. To be considered, your courses need to be completed at an approved teacher education institution (that is, completed at a faculty of education of an approved postsecondary institution), be in addition to your initial teacher education program required for certification, consist of at least 125 hours, and contain a concentrated study of teaching methodology appropriate for Ontario curriculum in elementary and/or secondary schools. Please note: Equivalent Standing is intended for approved teacher education coursework completed at an institution outside of Ontario.
