For 74 years, St. Petersburg College has been offering a standard of excellence in education as a community college. In 2001, it became Florida’s first community college to be afforded 4-year status and it dropped the “junior” from its name. St. Petersburg College (SPC) now offers a variety of associate degree, certification and baccalaureate degree programs.


The CSDA training classes will be held on the Clearwater Campus through the Building Arts Department.
