In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to obtain your digital TSC registration certificate and meet the specific requirements.

Why the Transition to Digital Certificates?
The shift to digital registration certificates is part of Teachers Service Commission’s broader initiative to digitize its services, providing a more efficient and accessible experience for registered teachers. With this digital transformation, TSC aims to streamline the registration process and ensure that every registered teacher has easy access to their certificate when needed.
Obtaining Your Digital TSC Registration Certificate
Follow the steps below in order to get the new Digital TSC registration certificate.
1. Provide a Valid Email Address
When you apply for registration with the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, the first step is to submit a valid email address. This email address will serve as the primary communication channel between you and TSC throughout the registration process.
Pro Tip: It’s essential to choose an email address that you can access at any time. Using an email you can’t access may lead to complications during registration.
2. Receive a One Time Pin (OTP)
After successfully submitting your registration application, you’ll receive a One Time Pin (OTP) on your mobile phone. The OTP serves as a verification code, confirming your identity in the registration process. Simply enter the OTP as prompted to complete the verification.

Once your registration is approved, TSC will send you a digitized copy of your Certificate of Registration to the email address you provided during the application.
4. Download and Print
To have a physical copy of your registration certificate, download the emailed certificate and print it out. This hard copy serves as tangible evidence of your registration with TSC.
