Continuing Education and Workforce Development


“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


“Having worked for larger architectural firms, I know how competitive it is out there, and knew that I needed to upgrade my business software from AutoCAD to Revit. I first enrolled in Revit I as refresher and now have enrolled in Revit II. I really appreciate the small class sizes and the instructor is extremely patient and available for questions.”

–Laura Dyer, MCTC Continuing Education Architectural Technology Student
