This WyoTech Blairsville campus received its initial accreditation in October 2001 and has received approval from 48 state governing authorities.

Blairsville is a close-knit community of approximately 4,000 citizens nestled in the Conemaugh River Valley with the Conemaugh River forming 180 degrees of the town's perimeter border.
