We believe that every follower of Jesus is in full-time ministry
whether they are in the pulpit, in business, or at home.
TCCTC offers non-degree certificate programs, continuing education units (CEUs), and training workshops and seminars. All enhance lifelong Christian growth relating to individual, workplace, and congregational life.
TCCTC’s Training Programs are designed for the person who does not desire a college degree but is seeking exposure to excellent teaching and training while earning a (non-credit) certificate in a specific area/track such as:
- Pastoral Leadership
- Ministry Leadership
- Congregational Leadership
- Workplace Leadership
- Biblical Lay Counseling
- Biblical Studies
Students who plan to pursue a training track must submit a formal application for acceptance into the program prior to the semester in which they wish to enroll and make an appointment with a student advisor.
Certificates will be awarded at the end of the school year in which the required number of Contact Units (CUs) have been completed in a given program.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
TCCTC courses may meet continuing education, inservice, or certification needs of a variety of professionals. Many professional groups require CEUs for continuing education or certification. Some institutions require teacher inservice points for educational professionals. Still other groups may use TCCTC courses to meet partial requirements for ordination. It is the professional’s responsibility to inquire of their credentialing agency, licensing board or certifying body to determine whether TCCTC courses meet these various needs. Teacher inservice points may be earned via TCCTC courses if approved by the school or district Teacher Inservice Plan. TCCTC enjoys provider status through the State of Florida to offer CEUs to clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, teachers, pastors, and other professional groups.
Personal Studies (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
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.
- Denominational Certification
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.
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.
