Teacher Certification

Welcome to the Teacher Certification web site. The purpose of this site is to provide the most current information regarding the rules and laws for Florida Teacher Certification. It is our goal to provide a resource that enables access to information.

A valid Florida Educator's Certificate is required under Florida Law by all teachers. Our staff will be happy to assist you with the certification process.


Securing and updating a certificate is the responsibility of the teacher. Our staff is here to provide guidance, but the teacher must fulfill the requirements and complete all procedures.
