So you want to earn your Florida Teacher Certification? Fortunately there are two ways to get it:

Traditional Approach for the Florida Teacher Certification

  1. Attend a school and get a bachelor's or masters college degree
  2. Take a teacher prep course (student teaching). The state of Florida requires some teaching experience (can be unpaid)
  3. You will need to complete all three portions of the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations (FTCE).
  4. Submit the following:
    • Completed CG-10 application form
    • Current certifications (if you already have one)
    • $56 Application fee for each subject
    • Official Transcripts of all degrees and credits you have earned
    • Mail to:
      Florida Department of Education
      Bureau of Educator Certification
      Suite 201 Turlington Building
      325 West Gaines Street
      Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400
      For more information, call (800) 445-6739
  5. Do you want to renew your Florida Teacher Certification?

Alternative Approach for the Florida Teacher Certification

Alternatively, instead of getting your Florida Teaching Certificate you can get the temporary version. The Florida Temporary Certification will allow you to teach without completing the teacher education program for a maximum of 3 years.

  1. You must still earn your bachelors degree from a credited university. Ideally, you should always continue your education in efforts to earn a Master’s degree.
  2. You will need to receive employment in the Florida School District
  3. Read The Official Statement of Status Eligibility
  4. Learn more about the Alternative Florida Teacher Certification

All the school districts in Florida offer a unique program for new teachers including training, internships, and instructions on going from a Temporary Certification to the Florida Initial Teaching Certification.
