Satisfying Subject Specialization


You may satsify subject area specialization by any one of the following:

  • Hold a valid standard certificate from a US state or territory in the same subject area for which your applied (See Reciprocity)
  • Hold a valid certificate issued by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (See NBPTS Chart) or the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence (ABCTE) in the same subject area for which you applied

To qualify for a Florida Temporary Certificate, you must meet subject area specialization in at least one subject for which you apply.
