TCTI is becoming TCTC. Texas County Technical Institute in Houston is changing its name to Texas County Technical College.
“Now that we are granting an associate’s degree to our LPN to Registered Nurse program, we are exploring the possibilities in other fields that will enhance our current offerings and provide additional skills and education for our students,” said Charlotte Gray, president. “We are looking for ways to help students find employment during these difficult economic times.”
Former students will have the opportunity for additional classes to further their education and qualify them for certification in some of the medical office classes, as well as an associate’s degree.
The change was granted by the secretary of state’s office in Jefferson City on March 9 and reported to the Missouri State Board of Nursing, the U.S. Department of Education and the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools, ACICS, in Washington, D.C.
TCTC offers programs in practical nursing and an accelerated LPN to R.N. academic associate’s degree, EMT-basic and EMT-paramedic, medical office assistant and accounting. Short-term community classes in eBay, digital photography and computers are offered to the community, and the nursing classes participate in fairs and activities around the county. TCTC is also an ASE testing site for area mechanics.
The goal of Texas County Technical College is to help others help themselves, the institution said. The college serves adult students of all ages with placement assistance and funding available to those who qualify for Pell grants, guaranteed student loans and scholarships.
Texas County Technical College is dedicated to the student’s educational and personal development. The belief in professional, knowledgeable and dedicated instructors and specialized training will enable a student to be prepared for today’s job market.
