Christ-Centered and Biblically-Based
TCCTC offers non-degree certificate programs, continuing education units, and training workshops and seminars. All enhance lifelong Christian growth relating to individual, workplace, and congregational life.
Courses for Personal Growth (Audit)
Students may audit courses for personal growth and enjoyment rather than earn course credit. Although examinations and outside reading are not required, the instructor may allow auditing students to take exams to gauge individual growth. Records of attendance for audited classes are kept, but a student file is not maintained. Audited courses may be applied toward the following non-degree programs at the discretion of the instructor:
- Certificate of Attendance
- Content Cluster
- One-Year Certificate
- Two-Year Certificate
- Denominational Certification
Certificate of Attendance
Although audited courses are not eligible for college credit, a student may request a certificate of attendance through the Registrar’s Office. This request must be made at the time of registration and may be picked up after the last day of class.
Certificate of Completion
Certificates of completion for individual courses may be requested at the time of registration. Receipt of a certificate requires a minimum of 80% attendance. Students requesting certificates may pick them up after the last day of class from the Registrar’s Office.
One-Year Certificate (Non-Credit)
This certificate is designed for the person who does not want or need a college degree but desires written proof of commitment, regular attendance, and exposure to excellent teaching. It is equivalent to one full year of study, whether taken in one year or longer. A completed application for the certificate will allow you to begin this process. This award will be made at the end of the school year upon the completion of 30 semester units, to include a minimum of five units in biblical studies.
Two-Year Certificate (Non-Credit)
This certificate is equivalent to two full years of study. A completed application will allow a student to begin the process. The academic advisor will work out a program specifically designed for the student at that time. This award will be made at the end of the school year in which 60 semester units are completed. The semester units must include a minimum of 10 units on specific books of the Bible or bible survey courses. It may also include a practicum in the area of your ministry or major interest.
Some denominations have designed programs to meet their specific needs. When requested, TCCTC cooperatively plans programs to meet these unique requirements. If preferred, these programs may be taken for credit.
Content Clusters (this program is under development)
Content clusters are designed for individuals who attend the equivalent of six full-day seminars (about 42 clock-hours) in their area of ministry. These learning opportunities will involve seminars, short papers and a (supervised) project design. Areas include Christian education, prayer and intercession, praise and worship, servant leadership, personal and family life, and God in the workplace.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Inservice Points
TCCTC offers CEUs in cooperation with various professional groups including the Association of Christian Schools International (A.C.S.I.) and the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (F.A.C.C.S.). These may be earned by attending classes, workshops or seminars.
TCCTC has provider status with the State of Florida to grant continuing education credits (CEUs) for clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, and mental health counselors under the Provider Status License #50-318 (expires 3/31/2018 and is renewed every three years). CEUs are calculated based on one continuing education unit per 50-minute contact hour.
TCCTC is an approved A.C.S.I. CEU provider. Teachers in schools accredited by the A.C.S.I. receive one CEU for every six contact hours of A.C.S.I. approved courses. Teachers in other schools may receive Teacher Education Center (T.E.C.) credit if courses offered are approved by the school or school district teacher education plan. TCCTC will gladly work with other professional groups to help meet certification or credentialing needs.
Come and See!
TCCTC’s Open House and Orientation is a great opportunity to get to know us. Prior to the fall and winter/spring semesters, TCCTC holds an open house for students, area pastors, churches and local ministries. This event includes an orientation for new and returning students. During orientation, students have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff, familiarize themselves with school standards and the TCCTC campus, receive academic advisement, gain knowledge of study programs and study aids, financial counseling, scholarships, and register for classes. Please check the Upcoming Events page for dates and times.
