Enrollment and Registration for Certificate
Florida Community College offers many postsecondary training
programs which prepare students to enter a new career. Each
of these programs prepares students to enter a specific occupation
or one of a cluster of related occupations. To complete a program,
students must demonstrate that they have mastered specific
job-related performance requirements as well as communication
and computation competencies. Upon the completion of a program,
students will be awarded a postsecondary training certificate.
Postsecondary job preparatory programs vary in length from 20
to 1,500 hours. Students entering programs which are 450 hours
or more are required to be assessed in basic reading, mathematics
and language skills. Prior to the completion of their respective
programs, those students who score below the prescribed grade
levels on the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) will be required
to enroll in basic skills training (VPI) and be retested to demonstrate
attainment of the prescribed skill level for their respective
programs of study.
