Alternative Certification

​​​Alternative certification is a program designed to make it possible for a wider number of people to consider a career in teaching. Through alternative certification individuals who have a Bachelor's Degree in a field other than education can earn a teaching certificate while they are employed as a teacher. The Volusia County School District does not offer an Alternative Certification Program, however, Daytona State College does offer an excellent alternative certification program.​

Daytona State College Educator Preparation Institute (EPI).

In addition to successfully completing an alternative certification program, participants will need to apply for certification. Contact Robin King, Volusia County Schools' Certification Specialist, for more information on applying for certification. Alternative Certification program participants will also be required to achieve passing scores on three tests given by the Florida Department of Education. These tests are:

  • General Knowledge Test

  • Florida Professional Educator Exam

  • Florida Subject Area Exam

Contact Robin King, Volusia County Schools' Certification Specialist, for more information on applying for certification and the certification exams. ​
