SPC offers Bachelor of Science degrees in seven concentrations to prepare you to teach in Florida schools. After completing an A.A. degree and the coursework in these concentrations, including school-based hours and internships, students will be guided through the steps to apply for your Florida Professional Certificate.
The Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) is an alternative certification program for students with a non-education bachelor's degree or higher. Education curriculum and field experiences are combined in an accelerated, three-semester program that leads to Florida's Professional teaching certificate.
For currently employed teachers on a temporary certificate who need to complete education courses to obtain professional certification.
For Florida certified teachers who need to fulfill education requirements for renewal or those who want to reinstate an expired certificate.
