State and National Certification Programs
Certification at the state and national levels is available to all AAAPTG members. Certification gives advanced professional standing on the basis of continued achievement and high professional standards in the field of music pedagogy.
State and National Certification are separate programs, administered by MMTA and MTNA respectively. Upon fulfillment of their standards, applicants are granted a professional certification credential with the designation, Nationally Certified Teacher of Music (NCTM) or State Certified Teacher of Music (SCTM).
The Guild’s certification chair can help guide you through the process. For more information, please consult the following links:
