Florida DFS Instructors Application Changes

The process for accrediting Florida instructors has changed.  Instructors now need to be “registered” in Florida instead of going through an application and qualification process.  Unfortunately, the registration process does still require the  submission of SSN’s and DOB and basic demographic information.

Once submitted, the instructor will be issued a an instructor ID number from the State.  The instructor ID is required when conducting  a CE program as it is used for course offering and certificates.

Instructors are no longer approved for specific course authorities.  The responsibility has been placed on the CE provider to determine if the instructor is qualified to present each topic.

Conferences are excluded from this instructor requirement.
