Lanier Technical College prepares people for successful work; therefore, the college is a major component in the fabric of life-long education for the service area. The college helps to minimize barriers to educational opportunities. It improves the intellectual and technical skills of area residents by providing adult literacy training, general academic and technical education, customized business and industrial training, economic development services, and continuing education services that prepare students and trainees for rewarding employment.
Lanier Technical College's economic development programs provide customized training and other services for business and industry to help existing companies to remain and succeed in the service area and to stimulate new business start-ups. Quick Start training and other economic development services are provided to attract new companies to the area, to assist companies to expand, and to help existing companies to implement new technologies.
Adult education services, including adult basic literacy, English literacy, and GED services, are provided throughout the service area to increase the literacy level of the workforce, to prepare students to continue their education, and to create a better quality of life for individuals and families. English Literacy Program (ELP) services are being expanded to meet rapidly growing demand for English literacy instruction and family literacy services for immigrant parents. Workplace instruction is being expanded to new sites. All adult education students are encouraged to increase their literacy levels, enroll in GED preparation classes, and enter technical programs or other postsecondary education.
Technology now makes it possible to overcome some of the barriers to obtaining an education. Taking classes via the Internet offers students a powerful tool to triumph over some of those factors, such as time and geography which would prevent them from attending classes offered in a traditional format.
Lanier Technical College is accredited to award associate of applied science degrees, diplomas and technical certificates of credit by a national agency, the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE).
