FTC provides the right environment for learning with individual student attention, experienced faculty, and career services.
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.
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.
At FTC, we recognize that our students are all busy individuals with family, work and a wide variety of other responsibilities. That is 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.
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.
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.
Career advising is available to our students from enrollment to graduation and beyond. Job search workshops on networking, effective job search, resume writing, and mock interviews are facilitated throughout the student life cycle. The Career Services team stays current with employment and industry trends by constantly seeking feedback from employers and researching labor market information. The Career Services team also hosts exclusive hiring events on campus throughout the year.
