Web browser and device support
The CTC website, including CTC Online, supports the following browsers only on Windows and Mac computers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE), versions 7, 8, 9
Download Internet Explorer for Windows.
Mozilla Firefox 4.x and above
Download Mozilla Firefox for Mac OS X or Windows.
Download Google Chrome for Mac OS X or Windows.
Note: The CTC Online web site, including Online Services for both Agencies and Educators, is not currently compatible with the Safari web browser on Macintosh computers. In addition, CTC Online cannot be accessed on iPads, iPhones, or iPod touch devices. Mac computer users can use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to access CTC Online.
The Commission on Teacher Credentialing launched the CTC Online system in order to best meet the current and future needs of California's teachers. The issue with Safari support is based on an incompatibility with the Oracle software used in the system, not with the CTC's design. We share your frustration with this incompatibility and we have a service request into Oracle to provide a solution. There is currently no timeline to have this completed. However, both the Chrome and Firefox browsers are supported on OS X, as indicated above.
