Certificate of Completion

Description:
The Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) provides a competency-based program that offers the individual with a bachelor's degree in a discipline other than education the preparation to become a classroom teacher.  Participants who demonstrate mastery of the twelve Florida Educator Accomplished Practices and present passing scores on all required sections of the Florida Teacher Certification Exams will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.  The program components designated by an EPI prefix provide institutional credit, are not transferable to a state university, and do not count toward any degree.  Program acceptance is required for participation in the EPI.
