Q & A

What is a Technical College?

Technical College’s prepare students for jobs in skilled trades and modern technology.

What is technical education?

Technical education – which is also known as career and technical education, or CTE – is training and education that prepares students for jobs in the applied sciences, skilled trades, or technology.

What kind of job prospects do your graduates have?

Technical college graduates have more job prospects than ever before. Graduates from Marion Technical College go on to work as firefighters, welders, electricians, IT technicians, cosmetologists, nurses, radiologic technologists, and so much more!

Why should I choose Marion Technical College?

At Marion Technical College you are more than a number, you are family. Our small class sizes make it easy for our instructors to get to know you, and each and every one of our staff members and instructors are committed to your success. We believe that you are capable of learning and joining the thousands of graduates before you, who have gone on to become the next generation of professional leaders in their fields.

What is the difference between a for-profit technical college and a non-profit technical college?

You may have noticed many technical schools are private, for-profit businesses. Private colleges sell education to students to make money. As a nonprofit institution, Marion Technical College’s goal is to prepare students for success, not to make a profit. Nonprofits, like MTC, invest any money they make back in our college, facilities, and students.

What is the difference between other colleges or universities and technical colleges?

What sets our college apart from traditional colleges and universities is that our programs focus on hands-on training. Instead of spending all of your time in a lecture hall, at Marion Technical College you will spend your time doing hands-on work in the lab and through externships that prepares you for rapid entry into in-demand technical careers. As a technical college, our programs take three months to two years to complete, which means you can get into the workforce faster.

Do I need to take courses to get the job I want?

If you want to earn the highest starting salary, learn the skills that employers are looking for, and gain the knowledge to pass your certifications, then it pays to get a technical school degree. Employers tell us that they prefer job candidates with technical degrees because these candidates are the best educated, highly skilled professionals who are ready to work from the moment they are hired.
