Educational Aide Application Instructions
Educational Aides must be employed by a Texas public school before applying for certification.
Application Process for Educational Aides:
Employing Texas public schools must enter basic profile information online before an educational aide will have the ability to set up an account and apply for his/her certification. This process pertains only to first-time applicants for an educational aide certificate. Persons who are applying for additional educational aide certification, renewal of a Standard Educational Aide certificate, or a duplicate of a prior certificate will be able to set up an account and apply without the assistance of an employing school district.
Texas public school employees who have been authorized to recommend educational aides for certification will enter the basic profile information using the secure entity access screen, selecting “Educational Aides” from the menu, then “Search Add/Edit Applicants”.
Once the district has entered the basic profile information, the educational aide will be able to set up an online account. To establish an account, the educational aide should select "Educator Login”, then “New User? Create New Account”. From this account, he or she may then apply for a certificate. The individual must be recommended by the employing school district.
