College Profile: Fort Myers Technical College
The mission of Lee County High Tech Center Central is to prepare students for the world of work by providing quality education delivered by a professional and caring staff in a positive learning environment.
As a student at High Tech Central, you will have the opportunity to use the tools and technology of professionals working in your career field of interest. All our equipment meets or exceeds industry standards. Our classes are small so that you receive individual attention every day.
Each program is supported by local business and industry members who help our instructors stay current in their fields. The advisory committee members also provide opportunities for job shadowing, internships, and jobs upon completion.
We prepare you for the high skill/high wage careers in our community. The administration and instructors combine efforts to provide a link between employers who wish to hire students and students who are actively seeking full- or part-time employment.
We are fully accredited through the Council on Occupational Education and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In addition, several of our programs are accredited through their associations and agencies.
High Tech Central offers over 30 programs in a wide variety of occupational clusters. However, it is interesting to note that despite the many new offerings which have been added over the years, the most popular and in-demand programs remain those that began when the school opened in 1967. The Cosmetology, Automotive, and Nursing programs continue to thrive and have waiting lists for entry.
High Tech Center Central is proud of the thousands of students it has graduated through the years, many who have gone on to become the engine that drives the Southwest Florida economy. Many graduates have become successful business owners, entrepreneurs, and skilled professionals in all walks of life. The school’s motto, “Preparing Students for the World of Work” is not just a slogan; it is a statement of fact.
