Clinical Educator Training

Do you have teachers who need to complete the state’s beginning teacher program?

The League of Christian Schools offers PEC/CET training which is training for meeting the state’s beginning teacher program to acquire teacher certification with the Department of Education. PEC training is essential for coaching and mentoring teachers as well as required training for interns and supervising peer teachers for educational programs and state of Florida teaching certification. For Christian schools hiring teachers who would like to become licensed by the state of Florida, this program is required.

FLOCS is one of only 9 non-government agencies that hold a state-recognized Master Inservice program that allows teachers to earn and maintain Florida Teaching Credentials while teaching in a Christian school. All of our accredited schools are considered  Professional Education Competency (PEC) locations where the teacher can undergo formal observations for the renewal and licensing process.


PEC training is essential for coaching and mentoring teachers as well as a requirement for training for interns and supervising peer teachers for educational programs and the state of Florida teaching certification. There is a charge for the course ($150) which includes 20 hours of Professional Development, and certification as a PEC Observer for Florida state-certified teachers.

The FLOCS PEC program encompasses guidelines established by the Florida Department of Education, including specific training for administration and teacher interaction,  within a Christian perspective.


Florida League of Christian Schools Administrators, Principals, Early Learning Directors, and Teachers from accredited schools may participate in the PEC Training program. The training is beneficial to all LCS or FLDOE certified educators. This training is for credentialed supervising teachers, teaching coaches, and school administrators. (Attendees are required to have a Professional Educator Certification.)


Awareness of Competencies:  generic competencies, applied competencies, grade-specific competencies, variations, and interpretations of competencies.

Understanding of Domains: practice using the terminology and definitions of the expected practices in classroom settings, identify differences in negative and positive practices.

Practice and demonstration: use the FPMS tool to observe teachers,  identify skills teachers demonstrate in the classroom, recognize the types of observations.


Participants are trained to understand the domains and competencies of effective teaching.  Skills are developed to assist in mentoring and coaching peers and pre-service teachers. Group activities, individual assignments, team analysis, demonstration, practice, and testing.

Each participant who completes the program will receive a certification stating their qualification as a PEC educator. In addition, participants may earn up to 20 hours of in-service credit or 2 CEU’s for completion of the PEC program.
