11 OCT Application FAQ…. OCT wants a “Report from Faculty” sent to them as part of the required documentation I must submit. How do I get this? Nipissing sends a list of graduates automatically on your behalf, which is Nipissing’s recommendation to OCT in terms of who is eligible to be certified as a teacher. You do not need to request this. Please enter your OCT number on Web Advisor as soon as you have completed your registration for membership with OCT. Without this, we cannot submit your recommendation. Recommendations are usually sent in late May.
