    This depends on if you want to go through the certificate process again in a year s time Can you find out from your institution how long this process may take I was surprised how normal this request is for a university and how quickly an out of state college provided this for me Good luck Darla Grediagin Posts 33 Joined Sun Feb 09 2014 4 55 pm Top Re Certification question options by Johncn Mon Apr 07 2014 12 08 pm Hi As we always remind people EED is the best source of information about certification questions Sondra Meredith EED Teacher Certification Program Manager was our guest on a couple of live chats That said if I am interpreting you question correctly I have everything ready to go for my application except for the Institutional Recommendation Form Should I go on and submit my application for the 1 year Out of State Certificate or should I wait for the form and apply for the 2 year Initial Certificate Unless EED has changed their requirements on their site they use a single packet approach which simply means that when you send your application materials in with a signature required you need to make sure EVERYTHING is included That means you can t send everything but the Institutional Recommendation It s got to have all your forms in the same package as well as fingerprint cards and so on Hope this helps and let me know if they have changed that since our last ATP Live Chat with Sondra The Alaska EED Teacher Certification site is Alaska EED Teacher Certification Office Juneau http education alaska gov TeacherCertification Regards John Johncn Posts 165 Joined Sun Feb 09 2014 11 05 am Top Re Certification question options by msheffield Mon Apr 07 2014
