Florida law requires that teachers demonstrate mastery of basic skills, professional knowledge and specialization. FTCE has three required sections: General Knowledge, Subject Area and Professional Education. FELE is for individuals interested in seeking certification in Educational Leadership. Consult your academic advisor or a certification specialist from the school district in the county where you want to teach, or access the website for the Florida Department of Education's Bureau of Educator Certification for testing requirements.
