I do not meet the subject area requirements for any certification subjects. Can I enroll in an alternative certification program to become eligible for a Temporary Certificate?
No. To enroll in an alternative certification program in Florida, you must have a bachelor’s degree and qualify for a Florida Temporary Certificate. Alternative certification does not provide specific subject content preparation. It instead provides professional pedagogical (teaching) preparation for newly hired educators who already qualify for a Florida Temporary Certificate.
