What are the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations (FTCE)?
The State of Florida requires that teachers pass the following exams in order to obtain a Professional Teaching Certificate:
General Knowledge Exam (GKE)
Professional Education Test (PEd)
Subject Area Examination (SAE)
Please note that in order to be accepted into any teacher education baccalaureate program, a student MUST pass the GKE. For admission into the TEP Bachelor of Science in Education programs at BC, students are required to pass any one of the four sections. The
GKE Info Sheet.pdf includes important information about the exam.
