Biotechnology manufacturers are expected to continue to be drawn to Frederick County, with the number of jobs expected to more than triple between 2016-2026.   There are a wide range of jobs associated with this industry; the FCC Biotech Systems & Maintenance courses prepare students for jobs as biorepository technicians, production technicians, process technicians, process mechanics, maintenance technicians, or manufacturing associates.

The new Logistics & Production Technology program at Frederick Community College prepares students for a successful career in supply chain, biotechnology, and manufacturing industries. Students develop competency with in-demand equipment and processes, strengthen mathematics and measurement skills, and practice communication and customer relations. This is a noncredit program that provides a foundation for industry jobs or the pursuit of advanced training.

Frederick County Public School students may receive free tuition through Dual Enrollment at FCC for all courses.  Fee and book scholarships may be available for select programs. Students should speak with their high school counselor first if they plan to enroll in an FCC workforce development course or program.
