Candidate support and assistance

It has been MEA-MFT's and the Montana Professional Teaching Foundation's great privilege to provide NBC candidate support since 1997. JumpStart is our annual event that is designed to provide intensive training to candidates on how to be successful in each component of the NBC process. JumpStart offers a session on each of the components of NBC as well as a session on the foundations of candidacy. During these sessions, candidates receive tips on completing the National Board Certification process from National Board Certified teachers. In addition to JumpStart, MPTF has a cadre of trained facilitators that are available to assist candidates throughout the NBC process. MEA-MFT provides both JumpStart and individual candidate assistance at no charge to members.

If you have any questions about candidate support in Montana or becoming involved in these sessions, please contact Marco Ferro of MEA-MFT at
