Educator Preparation Institutes

Education Preparation Institutes (EPIs) are an alternative method (other than the traditional coursework route) for completion of professional education requirements for non-education majors. Many colleges offer approved EPI programs which honor the professional education college courses and the professional education competency requirement. Successful completion of an EPI will meet professional certification eligibility requirements.

A complete list of state-approved EPI programs can be found on the FLDOE’s website.
