Blue Banner with military 5 year temporary certification

Florida educators must be certified to teach in our public schools. Educators include classroom teachers, school administrators, and other support professionals, such as guidance counselors and media specialists. 

Beginning July 1, 2022, a program was developed for veterans and servicemembers to receive a five-year temporary education certificate while they finish their bachelor’s degree, provided they meet certain criteria. This will allow the veteran to earn a bachelor's degree as well as complete the requirements to upgrade to a professional certificate.
