A UFTeach student may or may not be required to sit for a Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE) to be eligible for a temporary certificate. If your academic major matches the subject you want to teach (e.g. biology major seeking Biology 6-12 certification), or if you have satisfied course-count requirements, you do not have to pass any exams before being eligible for temporary certification.
See http://www.fldoe.org/teaching/certification/certificate-subjects/ and click on the subject to find out minimum subject area requirements by major and by course-count. If the major does not match the subject you want to teach (e.g. engineering major seeking Math 6-12 certification), and you have not satisfied the course-count requirements, you would have to pass the relevant Subject Area Exam before being eligible for temporary certification.
See http://www.fldoe.org/teaching/certification/certificate-subjects/certification-subject-examinations.stml for a table of those exam requirements by subject area. The temporary teaching certificate is good for three years and is non-renewable. Once all Florida Department of Education requirements are fulfilled during these three years, professional certification may be applied for. The testing requirements for professional certification are (1) General Knowledge Test all four sections, (2) Subject Area Exam, and (3) Professional Education Test. Registration information and preparation materials for the FTCE’s are available through the FTCE website. Commercially prepared materials are also available online and in bookstores and libraries.
