Once in "PENDING EVALUATION", please wait patiently. MOECS will send an email when the application is placed on "HOLD", or is "APPROVED". Once approved, the certificate can be printed from your account. Professional educator certificate RENEWALS are valid upon payment and may be printed immediately thereafter.
