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.
