Getting Your TRCN Professional Certification or/and Letter of Professional Standing for Your QTS Evaluation
To save you of some reading time, this write-up will talk about:
1. Nigerians abroad who need their TRCN Professional Certification and how they can go about applying for the TRCN Professional Qualification Exam (PQE), how they will write the exam, how they will check their results, how they will apply for their certificate, and how they will get the professional certificate. Nigerians in Nigeria who need same will also get insights from this section.
2. Nigerians abroad who want to get their TRCN Letter of Professional Standing, how they can go about the application, the difference between TRCN Professional Certificate and TRCN Letter of Professional Standing, how you can get a TRCN Letter of Professional Standing sent to an evaluation body for you, and so on. Nigerians in Nigeria who need same will also get insights from this section.
For Nigerians abroad who want to get their TRCN Professional Certification evaluated or want to use it for other purposes abroad, TRCN has finally realized that not everybody would be able to write the Professional Qualification Exam (PQE) in Nigeria, and there are teachers abroad who need this certification as well; it is good that they have created an opportunity for Nigerians in diaspora to write the PQE and get certified just like their counterparts who write theirs in Nigeria. The only difference is that while Nigerians in Nigeria write theirs together online at a designated centre in Nigeria and the exam is written two times every year, Nigerians abroad get to write theirs individually online from abroad and the exam is written every month. The only bad side of this is that both candidates in Nigeria and candidates in the diaspora will have to apply in person (TRCN is yet to have a public online platform to apply for the exam, so application is still done on papers). The implication of this is that if you are abroad and your need the TRCN Professional Certificate, you would need somebody to help you do the application in Nigeria and also help you submit all the necessary documents, then you go ahead and write your exam from your abroad.
The results for diaspora candidates is made ready in shorter period than the results of candidates who wrote theirs in Nigeria, also, you would still need somebody to go to their office to check if you passed the exam or not (I do not think they have online communication of results yet). After you have seen that you passed the exam, you then can apply for the certificate (you need somebody to help you make this application at their office as well, as this process is physical too), your certificate should be ready for pick up by one month thereabouts. Your person can courier it to you or scan and send the soft copy to you so you can use it for what you need it for abroad. I believe in the nearest future, TRCN will realize that the application for this exam, the result checking, the application for the certificate and the sending of the certificate to diaspora candidates (especially) need to be 100% online as soon as possible, as the need for this certification is on the rise than ever—especially amongst diaspora Nigerian teachers. But before they make such online service available, please be informed that we can help you do all that’s involved in applying for the exam, checking your result after writing the exam, applying for the certificate, collecting the certificate and couriering or scanning it to you, just go ahead and fill this form here and make the payment stated on the form, we will take it from there and you will have nothing to stress over.

For Nigerians abroad who need a TRCN Letter of Professional Standing at an evaluation body (in this case, Nigerians in UK will be used as point of discussion and QTS will be the evaluation body to discuss as where they need the document). It must firstly be stated that TRCN Letter of Processional Standing (LOPS) is not the same as TRCN Professional Certificate; while the certificate is like the certificate you got when you graduated from your school, the LOPS is like the transcript your school provides to report everything about you and your programme. Further explained, your TRCN Professional Certificate is your evidence that you are a professional teacher and you have been registered with the teaching professional body in Nigeria; meanwhile your TRCN Letter of Processional Standing is a detailed report on your registration with TRCN, how you qualified for the registration, when you got registered, the field and class you are qualified to teach, and whether or not you have been a good member of the professional body since you joined it, etc. I hope this is understood.
Moving forward, it must also be stated that while your TRCN Professional Certificate is yours to keep, the TRCN Letter of Processional Standing is an official document exchanged between TRCN and the institution/organisation you need it at; it can only be sent to your receiver by TRCN, yours is to apply for it and apply appropriately. You must also know that before you can be qualified to get a TRCN Letter of Processional Standing, you must have been a certified member of the professional body; that is, you must have gotten your TRCN Professional Certificate. You cannot get a Letter of Processional Standing from TRCN lest you have already written and passed the TRCN PQE and you have been certified accordingly. Slimming this explanation down to teachers in the UK needing to send their TRCN Letter of Processional Standing to QTS for evaluation, you must firstly apply for the evaluation with QTS, they will give you a reference number, after which you can then apply for your TRCN Letter of Processional Standing at TRCN via this email address email@example.com. TRCN would charge you #60,000 thereabouts for this, and they will need your QTS reference number. TRCN would send the Letter of Processional Standing directly to QTS via this email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not apply for the Letter of Processional Standing lest you have applied at QTS. Also, TRCN only provide Letter of Professional Standing for teachers who are certified with the TRCN Professional Certificate. You can contact us on +2348139534187 or email@example.com for more details on this.
