At Marion Technical College, we believe that learning is a life-long process. From the moment you took your first steps, your life has been a true and constant teacher. As you’ve lived, you’ve taken chances, missed opportunities, made mistakes and most importantly, you grew.

It’s important to reflect on these moments and use them as a catalyst to propel you to a future you deserve. You took the road less traveled, which is why MTC is the perfect school for you.

We believe that no matter where you are in life, you have the tools to succeed within you and we have the training to get you there. No matter your current situation in life, we will help you reach the future you deserve.

Career in a Year

At MTC, we don’t believe in the status quo. Our programs challenge the traditional education system, which is why we believe that you should be able to finish your career in a year.

We offer 19 diverse career paths to help propel your education and career goals in only 12 months. Whether you dream of becoming a radiology technologist, attending massage therapy school, or obtaining welding certifications, we have several choices that will save you valuable time so that you can hit the ground running in your preferred field.

Hands-On vs. Classroom Learning

We know that you may not be considered the “stereotypical” student but we’re not a “stereotypical” school, either. While other people are sleeping, you’re staying up to keep studying, and while other schools want you to have your nose in a book, we want you to experience the industry. Not only will you experience the industry, but you will earn the certifications and/or licensure necessary to help you excel in that field.

While other students feel tired, you look within and persevere and these are the qualities we look for at MTC. We provide a tailored learning experience to maximize your education. We believe that your knowledge and skills should be stimulated with realistic hands-on-learning because studies have shown that while we retain approximately 10 percent of what we see, we retain 90 percent of what we see, hear, and do. With our institute’s quality instruction, we leave our students with the tangible skill sets for their chosen career path.

Cheaper than Traditional Education

We see our students as more than just a resume and application. We believe that the high cost of education should not prohibit students from pursuing a career. With the understanding of real-world expenses and having to work over-time just to make ends meet, we pride ourselves on offering quality education to members of our community at an affordable cost.

While the average trade school program costs $33,000, the average MTC program costs only $4,432. To help cover the cost, we also accept Federal Pell Grants, scholarships, and third party financial assistance for programs. Our Financial Aid Office is here to assist you in getting any funds that can help you to obtain the education you want (based on eligibility requirements).

It doesn’t matter if you’re fresh out of high school, haven’t been in a classroom for years, or are simply looking to switch careers, MTC welcomes you with open arms. We’ll provide you with the tools necessary to get you on the path to success.
