Florida Technical College – Training students for more than 30 years.
FTC was founded in 1982 to provide post-secondary training in specialized business fields. Florida Technical College programs are exciting and dynamic, evolving over the years to meet the needs of students and the job marketplace.
“Focused” Learning – An Innovative Approach to Education
FTC students typically take only one course per month. This focused approach helps students turn theory into practice. It fosters better learning by allowing students to concentrate on just one subject with one faculty member at a time.
Flexible Class Schedules: Career Training to Fit Your Lifestyle
At FTC, we recognize that our students are all busy individuals with family, work and a wide variety of other responsibilities. That’s why we offer Day and Evening classes. You can choose the schedule that best fits your lifestyle. Professional career training is necessary in order to get ahead in today’s job market – but you don’t have to put your life on hold to get it.
The Right Learning Environment
At Florida Technical College, we strive to make each student feel special. We do this by providing individual attention, guidance and personalized career services. We offer a supportive environment to aid learning as well as personal and professional growth.
Small Classes for Individualized Attention
The key to our individualized career programs begins with the classroom. Florida Technical College students are able to receive the personal attention they need to increase their understanding and improve their skills. Smaller classes mean students enjoy greater access to our computers and laboratories, gain more hands-on experience and develop important skills more quickly.
Helping You Find the Job of Your Dreams
Career placement assistance and services are available to our students from Admission through Graduation and beyond. Each student receives on-going career services from our instructors, administrative staff and Career Services staff. Career services augment the student’s formal academic experience, providing the skills and training needed to find the right job and build a rewarding career.
