Program Details

The University of Florida’s (UF) Certificate Program in Program Finance for Teachers is offered through UF’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and under the Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences. This certificate program is intended to provide teachers with the background and resources to bring meaningful finance topics into the classroom, and teach high school students who to responsibly manage their own assets. This program’s entirely distance learning format was designed for working professionals who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

This program is made possible through the National Institute for Financial and Economic Literacy, which has been providing teachers with financial knowledge and skills for over a decade. For the first time, through this unique program, NIEFL is providing this education in a distance-learning format. This may be an excellent option for working teachers around the country who wish to gain this important and specialized education. Through this certificate program, students will learn about the major life decisions necessary to produce healthy financial decisions for a household. These courses aim to prepare instructors to teach grade school students prudent skills on making consumer decisions for cell phone contracts, purchasing or leasing a car, and homeownership. Courses taken through this certificate program span topics such as Financial Record Keeping, Income Tax Planning, Planning for Retirement Needs, and Common Consumer Frauds.
