2017-2018 Semester Catalog

The President’s Message

Pete McDonald Cropped imageJobs, jobs, jobs. . . . a good job is the goal for anyone unemployed or seeking a better career. The goal of the faculty and staff of Georgia Northwestern Technical College is to help every student complete their program of study and begin the job of their choice.

Please know that every student is welcome at GNTC and our staff is ready and willing to assist you with any questions about admission to the college or assistance you may need with financial aid or career guidance.

There are many good job openings in our region but to gain employment, students must have good skills and show good work habits. Technical job skills and knowledge along with a positive work attitude is a winning combination. In northwest Georgia, we have a strong, pro-business infrastructure and our economic base has proven to be resilient during past downturns. Our service area lies between Atlanta and Chattanooga and we will continue to be called upon to provide education and training programs for the businesses in the region. There is a strong demand for workers with good technical skills. Companies such as Georgia Power, Pirelli Tire, Mohawk, Shaw and our major health care providers depend strongly on the technical colleges for their supply of educated, skilled employees.

Georgia Northwestern Technical College is ready to assist you whether you need to prepare for your GED® or have a college degree and want to gain skills that will prepare you for the real world. We are the college connected to the job market.

As you read through this catalog, keep in mind we have campuses in Catoosa, Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker and Whitfield Counties. We are accessible, affordable, and aligned with the employers in northwest Georgia.

Sincerely,

Pete McDonald Signature
