PDCP Logo
  • The Professional Development Certification Program is designed to develop quality teachers for the students of Brevard.  PDCP, is a competency-based, job embedded educator preparation program preparing teachers to meet the Florida Educator Accomplished Practices. PDCP offers face to face, hybrid, and distance learning opportunities for the professional educator.  PDCP is an alternative path for those coming into the profession on a temporary teaching certificate.  Program participants complete a job embedded portfolio, take inservice courses designed to support their instructional practices, and work toward passing their professional certification exam.  We serve all K-12 classroom teachers.  Candidates can enter PDCP in September, January, and May once they have met the initial eligibility requirements.
