Professional Education Test (PEd)
The Professional Education Test (PEd) is one of three tests that compose the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations (FTCE). Florida law requires that teachers demonstrate mastery of basic skills, professional knowledge, and content area of specialization. Testing requirements for teacher candidates seeking certification are described in 6A-4.0021 Florida Administrative Code (FAC).
Candidates applying for a Professional Certificate may need to take the Professional Education Test. See your Official Statement of Status of Eligibility.
The PEd test is usually given in the afternoon and requires most of the afternoon, with arrival at 1:00 P.M. The actual testing time is 2-1/2 hours. It is a test of pedagogy and professional practices. Examinees often combine taking an FTCE Subject Area Examination (SAE) in the morning and the PEd test in the afternoon on the same test date. In some cases, when combined with certain tests such as French K-12, the PEd test is given in the morning and the language test in the afternoon. Check your admission ticket carefully!
