Florida Teacher Certification Examinations

The Florida Teacher Certification Exams (FTCEs) are state exams administered by Pearson Evaluation Systems to teacher candidates.

Students must take and pass three exams before graduating from an initial teacher certification program: the General Knowledge Exam, the Professional Education Exam and the specific Subject Area Examination that corresponds to their program.
