The Tennessee Technology Center at Jacksboro

The Tennessee Technology Center at Jacksboro opened in 1967, and has maintained its accreditation with the Council on Occupational Education for more than 30 years.  Each of our training programs follow a curriculum which combines a unique mix of academic study with practical work experiences to help the learner prepare for the real world of work.  From high school students to older adults affected by recent plant closings, this center offers many ways to help individuals prepare for work and enhance their quality of life.  Even basic skills classes are available for those who may need extra help with math, reading, and writing skills.  Since the instructional delivery in each program is competency based, students are able to progress at their own pace while the curriculum keeps their student focused on the skills required in their career choice.

Programs of study are available in Automotive Technology, Business Systems, Computer Operations, Drafting and CAD, Industrial Electricity, Machine Tool, Practical Nursing, and Welding. Flexible schedules enable full time, part time and evening enrollment.  Online courses are currently available in Computer Operations and Drafting, with Business Systems and Practical Nursing soon to follow.  Businesses and industry are also able to take advantage of Special Industry Training offered on-site by the Center which allows our school to work with employers to customize courses and seminars to meet their unique workforce needs.  For those who wish to continue their education at the community college level, articulation agreements have been developed to provide opportunities for our graduates to receive college credit for technology center classes to advance them toward the 2-year associates degree.

Our tuition and fees are extremely cost effective when compared to private vocational facilities and regional institutes of higher learning offering vocational training.  Our faculty-to-student ratio averages 1:15 for each program, which ensures appropriate opportunities to receive one-on-one training when needed.  Our programs are self-paced, enabling students to progress at their own rates.  Students may also graduate early if they meet their programs learning objectives before the allotted time period.  Many students with pre-existing skills and work experience in their areas of study find this option helpful.     

TTCJ also offers a full line of industrial training programs that are designed around specific training needs.  Visit our "Programs" web page for a complete description of special industrial training programs.  Our faculty have extensive work experience in their respective areas of discipline in addition to areas such as human resources, organizational development, supervisor and management training, quality assurance, and a variety of advanced industrial and business skills training.

I hope you will take a few moments to browse through our website.  I believe you will agree, our students not only receive excellent training and occupational guidance, but develop friendships and professional contacts that last long after their graduation.
