Prior to participating in these activities, download or print the following documents: Profile of Professional Growth (pdf), Renewal at a Glance, and NBPTS Standards for Your Certificate. After you have read the NBPTS documents to learn about renewal and made the decisions to complete NBPTS Certification Renewal, you may Jumpstart into Renewal by listening and viewing the NBPTS Renewal Webinar and participating in the Jumpstart into Renewal Activities.
Renewal Jumpstart is provided in the northern part of the state and in Central Illinois at Illinois State University in the fall of each year. Jumpstart consists of one daylong session and is provided at no cost to NBCTs. The Jumpstart session was designed to support you as you begin to explore the instructions found in the Profile of Professional Growth and plan to develop your PPG to meet the NBPTS criteria.
