About Florida Technical College

Florida Technical College was founded in 1982 to provide post-secondary training in specialized business fields. The main campus in Orland opened in 1982, followed by the Lakeland campus in 1990, and the DeLand campus in 1997. Classes began at the Kissimmee, Pembroke Pines, and Tampa campuses in 2011, and the South Miami campus opened in 2015.
