Professional Career Training Certificate Program
Professional Career Training Certificate Program (PCTC)
The mission of the Forensic Training Institute (FTI) Division of Professional and Continuing Studies is to provide forensic mental health professionals with lifelong learning opportunities that address their professional needs and the needs of the criminal justice systems they work with by enhancing the knowledge, skills and competence required to effectively assess and treat both adult and juvenile criminal offenders.
The new Forensic Training Institute Professionals Career Training Certificate program is specifically designed for those professionals assessing and treating criminal justice clients that are state licensed or certified in their profession who desire to update their knowledge and skills, or to focus in a particular area of knowledge within their scope of practice such as addictions, sexual offending, juvenile crime, criminal justice, etc. The Forensic Training Institute career training program is not a college or university degree granting program.
PCTC Course Program Description
