Florida Career College is a for-profit network of schools that has been providing career-focused training to students since 1982. Part of the wider Anthem Education network, Florida Career College has 12 campus locations in Florida. Its sister schools include UEI College -- located in Arizona and Texas -- and Anthem College Online. Florida Career College provides hands-on education and training in allied health, nursing, cosmetology, information technology and several technical trades. Students may earn associate degrees, diplomas or certificates. Online associate and bachelor's degrees are available through Anthem College Online.
Florida Career College, Anthem College and UEI College schools are accredited by the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges & Schools (ACICS).
Instructors at Florida Career College must have relevant real-world training and experience in their field before being hired. The school encourages all instructors to maintain any professional certifications that are available to them in their respective fields. Faculty members attend various seminars and workshops in order to keep current on industry trends, passing this knowledge along to their students.
Students attending the college commute to classes since there are no college-sponsored dormitories. FCC classrooms and labs seek to replicate a real-world working environment. Several of the locations offer "The Spa at the College," a lab environment which is open to other students and the public allowing students to hone their beauty skills on real clients. Enrolled students will find that most programs at the school only run one class at a time, allowing students to focus entirely on that one course. FCC's Career Services Center offers students training in various job search skills and techniques. Graduates of the school may take refresher courses and obtain help with job placement at no cost. The proximity of the campuses to major metropolitan areas in Florida provides students with plenty of off-campus activities and night-life.
