Students who are interested in a specific area, require training in a specialized area, or just want to see if college is the best educational path for them may begin their college experience by taking courses toward the completion of a certificate or diploma. Certificates and diplomas are designed to be completed in a short period of time, and may be used as a starting point to future educational opportunities. Additional certificates may be developed.

Currently, the only diploma offered at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is in Practical Nursing.

Students may select from the following certificates. Some of the certificates have prerequisites that must be completed before the student can enroll in the certificate courses.

Please contact an adviser or program coordinator of the certificate you are interested in before registering.

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
