Welcome to TeachHort.com
TeachHort.com provides high school horticulture teachers with the tools to prepare their students for FNGLA’s Certified Horticulture Professional (FCHP) exam.
The Florida Career and Professional Education (CAPE) Act was enacted into law in 2007. It requires public high schools to offer “rigorous and relevant” curriculum that leads to industry recognized certifications. Workforce Florida, Inc. and the Florida Department of Education have recognized the FCHP program as the horticulture certification that will comply with CAPE for Environmental Horticulture Science & Services.
Testing Your Students for FCHP
FNGLA's Certified Horticulture Professional (FCHP) program is fully integrated into the curriculum frameworks for Horticulture Science & Services, Landscape Management and Sports & Recreational Turf Operations, specifically Agriscience Foundations 1, Introductory Horticulture 2 and Horticulture Science 3. Setting up FCHP testing for your students is an easy process. Below are links to the forms necessary to establish your school as an FCHP test site as well as information on the process for FCHP testing for your students.

Both CDEs will run concurrently, completing before noon, so plan to stay for lunch. And winning teams will once again be recognized with awards at the conclusion of the CDEs.
Grab a team and take part in a fun and interactive Scavenger Hunt just after lunch on the grounds of the Research Center. Your students can win fun prizes and have an activity while waiting on results.
