TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WWSB) - Florida’s Military Veterans Certificate Pathway is providing special teaching opportunities to veterans throughout the state.

On August 17, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the launch of a new website to help fill vacancies in the Florida education system by recruiting qualified military veterans to join schools.

The state says 233 veterans have already applied for the opportunity since it’s inception. Through the initiative, veterans can receive a five-year temporary certificate if they served a minimum of 48 months active duty, have at least 60 college credits, and a 2.5 grade point average.

Through the Military Veterans Certification Pathway, veterans will have five years to fulfill the requirements for a professional certificate, including obtaining a bachelor’s degree.
