- At the beginning of Ozarks Technical Community College's second decade, there are many success stories that could be told — stories of new beginnings, dreams realized, goals accomplished. These stories are not fictitious; they are the real-life experiences of our students. The 18 year-old embarking on his first career, the single mother working toward a better life for her family, or the factory worker who suddenly found himself without a job. It is our desire to see our students succeed that keeps OTC constantly moving forward, constantly adapting to the educational and job training needs of the community. Short-term, affordable education has opened doors for thousands of southwest Missourians since 1991, and we anticipate serving a growing number in the years to come. At OTC our focus is on you, the student. Our wide variety of technical and general education programs can provide you with the skills you need to succeed in your lifetime endeavors. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to giving you the personal attention you need to attain your educational goals. Small class sizes, hands-on learning, and highly skilled instructors give you the advantage in the classroom and on the job. The Continuing Education Department serves the business community and general public in the college service region by offering non-credit learning opportunities to those seeking workforce training and skills development.
