Utah System of Technical Colleges

The Utah System of Technical Colleges provides certificate and training programs for trade jobs in Utah. Established by the State of Utah, it provides market-driven technical education through the eight ATCs that meets the needs of Utah's employers for skilled workers.

The technical colleges prepare both adult and high school students to enter or advance in the workplace. Customized training is also provided to employers for their specific work force.

The system includes over 300 certificate programs in 77 areas of training. The broad range of long-term and short-term programs include subjects such as business technology, nurse assisting, automotive technology, welding, culinary arts, computer-aided drafting, dental assisting and machine tool technology, as well as apprenticeships.

Programs result in licensing, certification or skill training to qualify students for specific employment in business and industry. High school students may attend a technical college tuition free (although they must pay class fees), and tuition for adults is minimal. Students may begin any time throughout the year and receive instruction in a self-paced format, making it convenient for working adults with limited time.
