Located primarily on Amarillo College's East Campus, the Technical Education Division delivers training through contracts, grants, and open enrollment for students and industry located throughout the Texas Panhandle and the entire state.

As the premiere technical education and training provider in the Texas Panhandle, we strive to provide our students with the skills necessary to compete in todays job market by offering programs responsive to the demands and needs of industry in our area. 

Our primary goal has three objectives:

  • To target academically and technically advanced students and provide them with the education, skills and experiences for success in well paid, rewarding jobs.
  • To improve the skill set of existing workers for professional advancement in their chosen career.
  • To develop life-long learners destined to become tomorrow's industrial leaders.

The secondary goal of the Technical Education Division is to be the bridge between the community and our industrial partners. Our objective is to educate and prepare our students with the technical skills in demand by our local industries, and to provide an incentive for growing companies to locate in West Texas.
