The Florida Department of Education requires that educators earn six semester hours of college credit every five years as part of their certificate renewal. Our courses can also help with reinstatement requirements.
Per F.S. 1012.585, effective July 1, 2014, recertification candidates must take the equivalent of at least 1 credit hour of Exceptional Student Education coursework per recertification period. The SPC College of Education offers several courses to help current teachers meet this requirement.
See the DOE website for:
We offer a variety of courses online and on-campus that help teachers satisfy education requirements for certification renewal or reinstatement. Teachers can take almost any type of college-level credit course to meet this requirement.
Contact the DOE to verify that a specific course meets requirements.
Students enrolled in renewal courses are classified as non-degree; however, courses are graded/for credit and will be reflected
on an official SPC transcript. Official transcripts must be requested by the teacher in MySPC and sent to the DOE for renewal credit.
