On behalf of Superintendent Joseph Taylor and the members of the Washington County School Board; Welcome and thank you for visiting Florida Panhandle Technical College’s (FPTC) website.
We offer a wide variety of programs intended to meet the goals of individuals preparing for various careers. Providing outstanding training for our students has been a focus for over 50 years. The mission of FPTC is to provide students with instruction in academic and technical training at competency levels, or above those required for employment and advancement in existing or potential occupational fields.
Florida Panhandle Technical College (FPTC) was established in 1967 as Washington-Holmes Area Vocational Technical Center, to meet the vocational education needs of Washington, Holmes and surrounding counties. The Center began classes in August 1967, and has grown from nine (9) programs of study to the present thirty plus (30+) programs. Today, as vocational education has evolved into career and technical training, we celebrate a rebrand into a technical college providing workforce training to support the Florida Panhandle.
