Ready to share your knowledge, expertise and wisdom with a new generation? Have you always had a passion to teach? Bring your non-education bachelor's degree to St. Petersburg College and earn a teaching credential in only three semesters.

SPC's state-approved Educator Preparation Institute Certificate leads to a Florida Professional Certification, so you can embark on a fulfilling first or second career. The program begins in the summer, continues in the fall and finishes in the spring. Classes are held in a blended format - you meet in the evenings once or twice a week on the Clearwater Campus and complete coursework online.

Your courses include a 60-hour practicum in the Fall semester and a full-day, 10-week internship in your final semester that can be completed in schools in Pinellas, Pasco or Hillsborough counties.
