Albany Technical College
- Albany Tech traces its roots back to 1961 when it was established as the Monroe Area Vocational-Technical School enrolling 175 students. Shortly thereafter, the Albany Area Vocational-Technical School was built, and in 1972 the two schools were merged in the current location. Albany Tech has adult learning centers in all seven of its service delivery counties. Today, more than 3,000 full-time students are enrolled in credit programs per quarter. Another 2,500 are enrolled part-time and in seminars, continuing education courses, teleconferences and customized business training. Albany Technical College, a public post-secondary institution of the Technical College System of Georgia, provides technical education and training support for evolving workforce development needs of Southwest Georgia. To accomplish this mission, the College utilizes traditional and distance learning methods. The following purposes of Albany Tech are based on the concept that education benefits individuals, businesses and the community to provide quality competency-based associate degree, diploma and technical certificates of credit programs that prepare students for employment in business, technical sciences, health care technology, personal services and industrial careers; and to provide basic adult education and development programs to help adults improve life skills and prepare for continued education and training.
