About Pinellas Technical Education Center, Clearwater

Pinellas Technical Education Center is a vocational school with locations in Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and online. The Clearwater campus is the first of the two, founded in 1965 as Florida’s first postsecondary technical school. Its campus has grown since then to include 16 buildings.

To meet the varied professional goals of Pinellas residents, the PTEC Clearwater features diverse academics. The school offers more than 20 programs in popular fields like cosmetology, machining, culinary arts and computer systems technology. There are also a few programs that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere, such as cabinetmaking and commercial art technology.

While you don’t have to live at Pinellas, PTEC’s admissions require proof of employment or residence in Florida. Students are expected to enroll full-time, and can choose to enroll in a certificate program or continuing workforce education program.

In addition to Title IV programs, PTEC offers financial aid in the form of endowed scholarships, which are based on merit and need. Some of these scholarships are quite substantial; the Bailey Family Foundation Scholarship, for example, is a $5,000 award. Graduating high school seniors can also apply for the Pinellas Education Foundation Scholarship.

Overall Rating

The practical nursing program here was outstanding! I was more prepared in their classrooms than some of the RN graduates I have come across in the last 5 1/2 Years. I do recommend that you immediately go to an IV cert class afterward and start on your RN as soon as possible.
