The northeast Texas region boasts a strong industrial base in manufacturing, fabrication, power generation, and warehousing and distribution. A shortage of skilled technicians in the industrial maintenance industry has created considerable opportunity for employment. Because of the high-tech technology used on today's equipment, there is an increasing demand for technicians with up-to-date skills. NTCC’s program trains qualified industrial maintenance technicians for excellent career opportunities. The Industrial Technology Program is self-paced, and students set their own schedules. Presentations, lessons and tests are available online, and the Skills Lab, where students practice hands-on skills, is open until 9:00 PM, Monday – Thursday.
