North Georgia Technical College announces new program classes on the Clarkesville Campus for college students as well as dual enrollment students for the upcoming fall semester. Students may take prerequisite classes this summer to begin their chosen program of study this fall.
The college will offer a new Diesel Engine Service Technician course of study beginning this fall, and students can receive certification in only two terms. Courses include diesel shop safety, tools and equipment, electrical systems and engines and support systems.
NGTC’s new Agriculture program, funded by a donation from the Tommy and Bernice Irvin Foundation, opens this fall with classes in Agribusiness, Modern Agriculture and Urban Sustainable Food Production. Agribusiness classes will focus on the learning basics of running an agriculture business in North Georgia. Modern Agriculture classes will focus on animal and poultry science, food and crop production, timber and fisheries, and viticulture (grape cultivation). Urban Sustainable Food Production will be horticulture classes that focus on how to grow fruits and vegetables in North Georgia along with the study of hydroponics (growing plants without soil and using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent). Both diplomas and degrees are offered in the Agriculture and Horticulture Programs.
Also, a new Business Management Program begins fall semester allowing students to earn an associate degree for entry into management and supervisory occupations. Students may choose to specialize in small business management, human resource management, marketing management or general business. Flexible scheduling also allows students to take a variety of day, evening and online courses in the program. Degree, diploma and certificate program options are available in the Business Management Program.
Application deadline for summer semester is April 26, 2018. Fall applications are also being taken at this time for students to reserve class schedules early. To apply or for more information regarding any of NGTC’s programs or to schedule an onsite tour, call 706-754-7700 or visit northgatech.edu
