Requesting access to KFETS:
EPP Leaders/Chairs at each institution will need to request access for specific faculty members to have access to the system and data. These faculty will be given access to upload course information and have access to all candidate records for their institution. A spreadsheet will be sent to each institution with the required information needed for providing access.
If you are a teacher candidate, create your account on the EPSB Web Portal to access KFETS. It will be available under EPSB Online Services. Candidates will choose the institution to attach field experience hours. Candidates will not be able to record hours until the institution uploads course information into KFETS.
Questions from candidates should be sent to the candidate’s specific institution.
Questions from institutions should be sent to: Brandon.Harrod@education.ky.gov.
