For those who have always wanted to teach, love challenges or are seeking a fulfilling new career,   PHSC’s state-approved Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) is an option to consider. The EPI program at PHSC is an online, seven month (two semester), sequential, program leading to Florida Professional Certification. The Institute is primarily for students with a non-education bachelor's degree or higher who want to become Florida certified teachers. The EPI program begins during the Fall and Spring sessions and runs consecutively through two terms: Fall session runs Fall and Spring. Spring session runs Spring and Summer.

By enrolling in the Educator Preparation Institute, participants will gain a solid foundation in classroom management, pedagogy, and instructional strategies that will enable you to enter the classroom with the skills and confidence needed to be a successful teacher.
