Our Learning System
To create legitimate professionals, we apply a proven four-tier system of learning:
1. Textbook Tutorials
The first step in our learning process is to read through the chapters and work through the tutorials in our textbooks. This gives an introduction to each subject, along with a basic understanding of how the theories and tools operate.
2. Video Tutorials
As a supplement to the textbooks, every enrolled student has access to over 100,000 video tutorials through a subscription to Lynda.com.
3. Live Lectures & Demonstrations
Another component in our learning process is our live “TechCrunch” Series. On specific days our instructors give lectures and live demonstrations to reinforce production techniques, concepts or best practices.
4. Hands-On Projects
Periodically, in each course, students apply their newly-acquired knowledge by completing hands-on projects from scratch. These projects are used in their professional portfolios and help to build their professional branding!
- Web Development Program ($4,560)
- Digital Design Program ($4,694)
In many cases, students can qualify for the Federal Pell Grant and have all of their educational expenses covered (up to $5,500.00 / year). This is just one of the many financial aid resources available to Pinellas Technical College Students. For more information, visit PTC’s Financial Aid and Admissions pages.
