Welcome to Trades & Vocational Training

Skilled and professional trained workers are in demand in our area. Begin your career by earning a Workforce Training Certificate at Frederick Community College. Acquire essential training, knowledge, skills, and experience required by today’s growing industries in fully-equipped labs at the Monroe Center.

Summer and Fall Registration is Open

FCC summer/fall classes will be delivered primarily online to maintain public safety. Face to face instruction and student interactions will only be conducted when it is necessary, required, and feasible to do so in a safe environment. Classes will be offered in online, structured remote, and hybrid learning formats. Comprehensive student resources remain available remotely to deliver College services to students. 

FCC is currently in Stage 1 of the Frederick Community College Roadmap to Resilience and Recovery plan.  As we continue to develop ways to safely and thoughtfully offer a few in-person instructional experiences, we tried to anticipate questions and provide answers about what to expect should you register for a class that meets on Main Campus or at the Monroe Center. Additional information is available here.
