Take note.

Just like ICAN for Accountants, and NBA for lawyers, TRCN conducts Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE) for teachers and issue official teaching licenses to those who pass the examination.

Can I write TRCN exam?

Yes.

If you studied Education in the University or went to College of Education, you are automatically eligible to register for TRCN.

But if you studied any Non-Education course in the University or have an HND, you will need to also possess a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE, PDE, or PDDE) to be eligible for TRCN registration, certificate and license.

What are the requirements for TRCN exam registration?

You required to possess and provide the following documents tocomplete your registration for TRCN exam.

School Certificate: your NCE, Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, or Doctorate degree certificate.

Teaching Qualification: if your school certificate is in Education (i.e., NCE, B.Ed, M.Ed), you are already a qualified teacher and do not need any more teaching qualification.

But if not, then you will need to present a teaching qualification (PGDE, PDE, or PDDE) along with your Non-Education school certificate (i.e., B.Sc, B.A, M.Sc, M.A, PhD).

Birth Certificate (photocopy).

Certificate of State of Origin (photocopy).

Passport Photographs (4 copies).

How to register for TRCN exam

Once you have all the required documents mentioned above, proceed with your TRCN exam registration as follows.

1. Go to any TRCN office

There is always one official TRCN office located in the capital city of each State in Nigeria.

We have made a list with the location, address and contact details of all the TRCN offices in Nigeria for you.

Visit the one nearest to you (in the State where you are) and do NOT consult anyone outside these offices to avoid being scammed.

2. Request to register

Once you get to any of the TRCN offices, tell the officer that you want to register for TRCN Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE).

You will be given the remita payment details to pay the sum of ₦3,500 to a “Federal account via Remita”.

Do NOT pay to any personal, business, or company account number!

3. Make the payment

Go to any bank or cyber café and tell them that you want to pay via Remita for TRCN exam.

Banks will do it without much questions but cyber café operators may need further guidance.

If they do, tell them to:

  • Visit the Remita Platform.
  • Select “Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria”.
  • Select “Professional Qualifying Examination Application Fee”.
  • Enter the GIFMIS code (get it from the TRCN officer)
  • Input the amount, your name, phone number and email.
  • Click on SUBMIT.
  • Input their ATM card details.
  • Click on “Make Payment”.

Do NOT give the cyber café (or anyone) your ATM card details because your account may be used to make further online payments without your consent.

Let the operator input their own card details for the payment while you refund them the money either as cash or transfer.

In fact,

If you are tech-savvy, you can use your phone or PC to make the payment online following the same steps above.

4. Go back to the TRCN office

Return to any of the TRCN offices with your evidence of payment (teller, remita receipt) and all the required documents for registration.

5. Fill the registration form

After confirming your documents and evidence of payment, the officer will give you the exam registration form to fill appropriately.

In the form, there will be a section for you to select one category from A to D.

Here’s the interpretation, select:

  • Category A – if you are a Doctorate degree holder.
  • Category B – if you are a Master’s degree holder.
  • Category C – if you are a Bachelor’s degree or HND holder.
  • Category D – if you are an NCE holder.

Select ONLY the category of your highest certification.

For example.

Mrs Funmilayo has a Master’s degree, Bachelor’s degree, and an NCE. She can only select Category B which is her highest certification.

After completing the form and submitting your documents, you will receive your TRCN exam permit to be used to gain entrance in the exam centre on your exam day.

Get your exam date from the officer and exchange contacts with him/her for further enquires or information about your exam.

GOOD LUCK.
