Gain New Skills

Gain new skills

A good education doesn't end with a high school diploma or college degree; it prepares you for a lifetime of learning. MCTC offers a broad spectrum of unique programs and courses that can help you learn new skills, change or advance your career or simply expand your horizons.

Non-credit professional development

Choose from dozens of non-credit continuing education classes that don't require you to go through the admissions process just to take a class. Earn CEUs and develop professional skills with short-term classes, series and certificates. Continuing education classes are small and offer the expertise of instructors with real-world experience you can learn from and apply at work the next day.

Affordable custom workplace training

For employers, we offer group discounts for regularly scheduled classes or affordable customized job training programs that respond to your workforce development needs quickly with the flexibility you expect from a customized solution. Take advantage of our industry expertise and knowledgeable instructors with years of experience.

Career and technical programs

We also offer more than 70 career and technical programs with completion options that range from three months to one year. You can attend classes on campus or take them online. Earn a certificate or diploma and start working, or consider transferring your credits to earn a four-year degree through one of our many articulation agreements.
