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 brush stroke 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.”

–Julie Droegemueller, Caribou Coffee

Why MCTC

“In 2003 while working at HGA Architects we developed continuing education classes for MCTC in 3D Visualization and Building Information Modeling. I have loved being around the college and the learning environment because the students constantly keep me on my toes.”

–Nathan Johnson, AIA, LEED AP, MCTC Continuing Education Architectural Technology Instructor
