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 PreK-12 classroom teachers.  Candidates can apply for PDCP during open enrollment periods, once they have met the initial eligibility requirements.
