Internationally certified teachers have completed their training in another country, and are now seeking a permanent, professional teaching license in Manitoba. The Certification Unit of Manitoba Education may require international teachers to complete additional courses in order to qualify for a license. Students may enrol in the Faculty of Education in order to complete these requirements.

Normally, internationally certified teachers are not admitted to a degree program, but are accepted on a special status so that they can complete the specific courses required for certification.
