odesto Technical College was founded to meet the training needs of employers and individuals. While employer preference played a major role in the formulation of curriculum and course content, the needs and individual characteristics of the trainee determined teaching methods, course length, and learning pace. The training program is designed to prepare the student for employment in the shortest time possible. To achieve this goal, course content is very structured and training includes job experience where practical. The primary mission of the institution is to provide technical and business related training programs to individuals wishing to enter the job market. A secondary goal of the institution is to develop and deliver training programs that upgrade job skills for those currently employed.
