A unique component of career technical education is the hands-on experience our students receive to be industry-ready. Each program has a lab where automotive and diesel students work on engines, health and public safety students practice taking blood pressures or welding students bend metal.
In Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Agriscience and Early Childhood Education, the community interacts with our students as they sharpen their skills.
Experience our students growth first hand by visiting the following services that are open to the general public.

The Hidden Nursery hosted by Ag Students
FCTC AgriScience students cultivate industry skills which make seasonal plants, annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables, shrubs, hanging baskets, and dish gardens available for the community to purchase at reasonable costs. Our 10,000 square foot greenhouse is always blooming with rare and traditional specimens – while it serves as an experimental lab where students learn innovative AgriScience practices.
The Greenhouse is located behind Building F on the Main Campus
