The National Board has implemented an electronic portfolio submission system, ePortfolio, which simplifies and enhances the way candidates compile and submit materials for evaluation.

During the portfolio submission window, National Board Certification and Renewal candidates will submit their materials online at http://www.nbpts.nesinc.com/Home.aspx. (Note: If you are accessing the ePortfolio system for the first time, you will be required to create an ePortfolio account before you can register your voucher code(s) or submit your materials. This account is separate from your National Board account.)
