Continuing Education and Customized Training

Why MCTC

"Our condominium overlooks the campus, and MCTC has been a very good neighbor to us. So, as an art lover, I took a painting course which allowed me to sharpen my technical burshstroke skills and let my creative energies flow."

–Sylvia Sabo, MCTC Continuing Education Student

Why MCTC

“I feel MCTC is one of the best options for computer training. It has been a great experience and MCTC is an organization that we will use in the future.”
