FTCE - Professional Review


Offered online or in-class in partnership with Master Mind Educational Consulting

UCF has developed a comprehensive FTCE Professional Review Program to empower teaching professionals and prospective students with the knowledge to receive high scores on the FTCE Professional exam's sections. 

Our FTCE Professional Review Program is taught by professional educators who are able to connect with the class to convey important test information and explain test-taking strategies that are easy to remember and apply. 

In-class option: Meet at our UCF Continuing Education building in Orlando, FL. 

Online option: Login to view the live online sessions streamed during Eastern Standard Time. You will be able to hear the instructor lead the course discussions, view the course handouts, and engage in an online chat discussion with students and your instructor. 

Registration is on a first come first serve basis and seats tend to fill up quickly. Register early as both the IN-PERSON and ONLINE sessions have a cap on enrollment.
