I am planning to add Athletic Coaching/Sports Medicine to my current Florida teaching certificate. I understand that I will need to complete the three courses covering the topics prescribed by the State Board of Education Rule 6A-4.0282. I also understand that I must earn the full 60 points available for each course completion.
- Current certificated teachers who want to add the athletic coaching endorsement to their existing certificate in order to coach on a part-time basis may complete this series to get athletic coaching added to their existing certificate (i.e. a Math teacher who assists with coaching football).
I do not currently hold a valid teaching certificate and am interested in coaching a school team. I understand that I may complete these three courses and apply for a renewable certificate for party-time athletic coaching as provided in State Board of Education Rule 6A-4.0282. This certificate process does not fall under the add-on or endorsement rule but does follow the process for applying for a regular part-time certificate.
- A person who does not currently have a valid teaching certificate and is interested in coaching a school team may complete these courses and apply for a renewable certificate for part-time athletic coaching. This certificate process does not fall under the add-on or endorsement rule but does follow the process for applying for a regular part-time certificate.
I hold certification in “athletic coaching” or “physical education” on a current, valid certificate and wish to complete one of the Coaching Endorsement courses to earn in-service points for certificate renewal.
- A teacher who has "athletic coaching" or "physical education" on a current valid certificate may take some of these courses for in-service points for renewal of their certificate.
