Our Mission

Atlanta Technical College, a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia, located in the city of Atlanta, is an accredited institution of higher education that recognizes the importance of global education. The college provides affordable lifelong learning opportunities, associate degrees, diplomas, technical certificates of credit, customized business and industry training, continuing education, and other learning services using state-of-the-art technology. The integration of academics and applied career preparation to enhance student learning is essential in meeting the workforce demands and economic development needs of people, businesses, and the communities we serve.

TECHNICAL CERTIFICATES OF CREDIT (TCCs)

These short-term training programs generally take two quarters or less to complete. Students who enroll in TCCs may qualify for the HOPE Grant and typically take the classes to enhance their existing job skills or to acquire very specific skills that may help them reach short-term goals. For example, many students studying Computer Information Systems elect to take a TCC that will allow them to achieve CISCO Systems specialization. The same goes for healthcare students who enroll in our Patient Care Assisting TCC in hopes of landing a specific type of entry-level job.

DIPLOMA PROGRAMS

Atlanta Technical College offers a wide variety of diploma programs which typically take four to six quarters to complete. We offer studies in several areas, including Business, Media, & Information Technology; Technical and Skilled Trades; and Health & Human Services. On the following pages you’ll find listings for dozens of programs, many of which offer day and evening classes. Eligible students enrolled in diploma programs may qualify for financial aid including the HOPE Grant.

ASSOCIATE DEGREES

Want to earn an associate degree? Atlanta Technical College is interested in helping you achieve that goal. Our college now offers students the chance to graduate with an Associate of Applied Technology degree in Hotel/ Restaurant/Tourism Management, Health Information Technology, Accounting, Marketing, Computer Information Systems, Early Childhood Care and Education, Fire Science, Pharmacy Technology, and Paralegal Studies. These programs take about two years to complete and, like all of our programs, are designed with the needs and expectations of industry in mind. Eligible students enrolled in associate degree programs may qualify for financial aid and/or the HOPE Scholarship.

Atlanta Technical College Named Top Technical College in Georgia

On December 6, 2012, the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) named Atlanta Technical College the Technical College of the Year! Using more than two dozen performance measures, including enrollment in technical and adult education programs, student retention and graduation rates, licensure pass rates, national awards, and administrative efficiencies, the TCSG State Board evaluates and ranks the system’s 25 technical colleges. The top-rated institution receives the Sonny Perdue Award and is named the Technical College of the Year for the State of Georgia. TCSG established the competition in 2009 as a means to recognize excellence in technical education. The first year of the Perdue competition, Atlanta Technical College placed in the top four. Since that time, college faculty, staff and administrators have placed renewed focus on using data-driven methodologies to improve student outcomes. As a result, graduation and retention rates have improved, enrollment has soared, and the job placement rate has increased.

Atlanta Technical College Celebrates Georgia STEM DAY Atlanta Technical College joined more than 100,000 students, faculty, and staff, representing more than 100 organizations, in celebrating Georgia STEM DAY on May 3. Organized by TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed), the Technology Association of Georgia’s charitable organization dedicated to preparing the next-generation workforce, Georgia STEM day was created to promote the benefits of science, technology, engineering, and math education. Governor Nathan Deal issued a proclamation the beginning of May, designating Georgia STEM Day as May 3 with the purpose of promoting STEM education and careers to K-12 students to help Georgia meet the growing demands of an increasingly technical marketplace. Teachers and business leaders were encouraged to lead innovative STEM-based learning activities in elementary, middle and high schools in the state in order to help students make the vital connection between the classroom and STEM careers. The faculty from the Atlanta Technical College bioscience technology program visited Hapeville Charter School and Career Academy to inform students about bioscience careers and academic pathways. The college offers an associate degree in bioscience technology, a technical certificate of credit in bioscience environmental laboratory technology and a technical certificate of credit in bioscience regulatory assurance technology.

Bank of America Awards Atlanta Technical College Foundation $200,000 to Improve Student Outcomes The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has welcomed the Atlanta Technical College Foundation into its Neighborhood Builder® program. The initiative supports high-performing nonprofits that have made a significant impact in the community working in the bank’s priority funding areas of housing, jobs, and hunger relief. The Neighborhood Builder program is a strategic investment that pairs leadership training with a $200,000 unrestricted grant so leaders gain valuable skills while applying funding where it is most needed. “Nonprofits provide much needed services in metro Atlanta, but too often lack the opportunity to invest in their own long-term growth and development,” said Geri Thomas, Georgia President, Bank of America. “By recognizing the Atlanta Technical College Foundation as Neighborhood Builders, we know that they are poised to make an even greater impact in our community.” Atlanta Technical College prepares Georgians for high demand occupations such as bioscience, nursing, commercial truck driving, aviation maintenance and supply chain management. Funds from the grant will support student success by helping to reduce the financial obstacles students face. The Atlanta Technical College Foundation will use the award from the Bank of America grant to help students pay for tuition, books, supplies, and public transportation as well as support student activities. “Our mission at Atlanta Technical College is workforce development,” said Dr. Alvetta Peterman Thomas, President, Atlanta Technical College. “With the Bank of America grant, we will be able to ensure that more of our students have the support they need to graduate and become successful in the world of work.” According to the Bridgespan Group, Neighborhood Builders is the largest investment in nonprofit leadership development: 2.5 times the next largest program (in spending) and the third largest in number of leaders served. Since 2004, Bank of America has invested more than $165 million through the program, recognized over 730 nonprofits, and trained nearly 1,500 nonprofit leaders. The Neighborhood Builders program is a capstone initiative building on the bank’s broader philanthropic commitment to addressing core issues that are critical to the economic vitality of local economies, with a particular focus on low and moderate income communities.

Increase your marketability with

Six Sigma certification What do these companies have in common? These companies have successfully implemented some form of Six Sigma in their operations. By the late 1990s, an estimated two-thirds of the Fortune 500 institutions had begun Six Sigma programs with the goal of reducing costs and improving profitability.[1] Now, you can take a step toward improving your employability by studying Six Sigma at Atlanta Technical College.

Companies world-wide understand the benefits of Six Sigma and now you, too, can experience. Enroll in one of the new Atlanta Technical College Six Sigma programs and improve your employability.

What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma is a five-step quality improvement process, established by Motorola in 1986, that enables people to understand business operations and develop procedures for improving outcomes. It includes: assessing problems, identifying the causes of the problems, outlining ways to measure improvements, and brainstorming solutions. There are two tracts in the Six Sigma process, DMAIC, which is used to improve an existing business process, and DMADV, which is used to create a new product or process. DMAIC - Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control DMADV – Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify Simply put, employees with Six Sigma certification become efficiency experts, using statistics and business processes to improve their organizations’ operations.

How do companies benefit? Six Sigma certified employees help companies to: • increase the bottom line. Employees are trained to determine the most efficient way to deliver the finest product to the customer. • improve morale.

STAR STUDENTS Meet

Shalethea McEroy-Williams, the 2013 Atlanta Technical College Student of the Year

What has your Atlanta Tech experience been like? 1. My experience at Atlanta Technical College has been wonderful. The teachers are always there when you need them. My advisor’s door is always open. I’m able to be a part of social organizations like Collegiate DECA and the Student Government Association, both of which take me out of my comfort zone and encourage me to become more confident in myself and my capabilities.

Why did you choose to attend Atlanta Technical College? 2. I have worked in the hospitality industry since 2005 and my dream is to open a boutique hotel. A few years ago, I came to the realization that I needed additional education to advance in the industry and ultimately achieve my goal.

When my husband enrolled in Atlanta Tech in 2010, I decided to take a closer look at what the institution had to offer. I was surprised to learn that it really was a great value financially and a doorway to opportunity. For very little cost, students have access to affordable and flexible education; social activities that create a traditional university feeling; and hands-on instruction that contributes to better retention. Atlanta Technical College truly has been the right choice for me and my family.

How does it feel to be named the Student of the Year? 3. Being named Student of the Year is a great honor. To know that someone thinks so highly of me and my abilities makes me want to work even harder to reach my goals.

Why should a potential student come to Atlanta Tech? 4. A potential student should come to Atlanta Technical College because it offers hands-on education, and flexible scheduling, and the teachers know you by name. I love not being just a number in class.

If you could share one message with the current student body, what would it be? 5. One thing I would share with the student body is a quote from Nora Roberts: “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”

fficials with the Atlanta Technical College GED® testing center are urging students to “Make 2013 your year, and don’t get left behind” by finishing the current version of the GED test before it expires at the end of 2013.
