The Applied Technology Division provides quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs that meet today’s demand for high skilled workers with the appropriate training and technical skills in order to enter the workforce. Our programs offer an affordable and strong foundation to starting a career in just two years or less, and gain the knowledge you need to succeed in a growing number of high paying careers. Eighty percent of technical careers require specialized training beyond high school, but do not require a traditional four-year degree.
FCC offers streamlined technical courses, industry recognized certificates and degrees. Degrees prepare students to transfer to a four year college should they decide to further their education. Industry partners provide FCC with the latest equipment, technology, and learning aides. Courses are made up of hands-on laboratory activities and classroom coursework.
