Certification Information

In order to be eligible to teach in Florida, corps members are required to pass a Subject Area Test and a General Knowledge Test prior to the start of the school year. Upon successful completion and passing of both exams, our teachers can obtain a temporary certificate that is valid for three years. While it is not required for corps members to receive standard professional certification, those who wish to be certified are required to take the Professional Knowledge Test and complete a certification program. Miami-Dade corps members have the option to participate in the Alternative Professional Preparation Program (AP3), which is a free certification program offered through the Miami-Dade County Public Schools system. Corps members also have access to the University of Miami for a master's in Education and Social Change, which was specifically created with our teachers in mind.
