The Florida Teacher Certification Exams are required testing for all prospective teachers. Testing requirements vary by subject area and can be found by clicking ‘Learn More’ below.

We offer test preparation modules for the General Knowledge Test within our online training. We also provide information on where to find free state preparation manuals, tests at-a-glance, test familiarization videos, and interactive practice tests.

We are actively building a free online forum in which teachers share their study tips and test feedback.


Once you complete your self-paced online training, you will have gained the expertise and knowledge necessary to begin teaching in the classroom.

Educational leaders provide the foundation of our curriculum, which is continually updated to provide the most relevant and effective classroom preparation.

86 hours of classroom readiness training is offered in our self-paced, online format, so that you can train to be a teacher while keeping your current job.

Our candidates complete field based experience prior to entering the classroom on their own, providing a real-world foundation for their training.

During the Internship Year, our teacher candidates complete case studies and field work in classroom management, among other areas of concentration such as literacy and assessment.
