“For some time tech centers and the ‘trades’ in general have received an unjust, negative stereotype,” explained GMTCC Director Erik Remmers.  “Green Mountain Technology & Career Center focuses on preparing our students to successfully pursue their passion.  That’s true whether they’ll go on to attend a college or university, or whether they complete their education and enter the workforce directly.  The mission of GMTCC is to provide our students with the academic, technical, and employment skills they’ll need to take their next step.”

GMTCC offers college courses through Dual Enrollment and Fast Forward, articulation agreements with colleges across the Northeast, internship opportunities and cooperative work experience, and professional certifications and industry-recognized credentials.

Join Green Mountain Technology & Career Center on October 21st, from 5:30-7:30 for its open house and optional pasta dinner, cooked and served by the Culinary Arts program.
