Atlanta Technical College (ATC) is part of the Technical College System of Georgia and is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). The college offers over 80 academic programs in three divisions: health and human services; business media and information technology; and, skilled trades and technical fields. These programs earn students associate degrees, diplomas, and technical certificates of credit while preparing them for good-paying, high performance careers.
Associate degrees take approximately two years to complete and can be used to transfer to four-year institutions, or for entry into the workforce. There are a number of diploma programs available to students which typically take four to six weeks to complete. Another available option is technical certificates, which are short-term training programs designed to complete within two quarters or less. To assist students with busy schedules, some classes are offered online.
There are also many continuing education courses, as well as an exchange program with a sister college in Germany.
