The MTSS-B TA Center offers MTSS-B Coaching Certification to individuals who have demonstrated training and experience in external and/or internal coaching of NH’s MTSS-B framework in districts and schools.
The purposes of the coaching certification process are to establish consistent criteria for NH MTSS-B coaching competencies, to provide a systematic pathway for coaches to demonstrate and be recognized for their expertise and experience, and to develop a list of experienced, certified coaches for MTSS-B stakeholders to access.
MTSS-B Coaching Certification is offered at three levels, each of which requires additional evidence of your coaching in key MTSS-B implementation tasks. Certification is a continuous process, allowing you to submit additional portfolio materials as you complete them to work toward higher certification levels.
To achieve Level 1 coaching certification, complete all of the Basic Requirements and upload sufficient Portfolio Documentation demonstrating experience in the required practices to reach a minimum score of 53%.
Once you achieve Level 1 certification, you can advance by continually building your portfolio. Submit additional documentation in any order until you reach the required score for the next level. Specific information for each level is provided below.
