Pickens Technical Institute

Pickens Tech maintains a close relationship with the business and industrial community to keep in step with the latest operating equipment and the skills needed to meet the requirements of each industry.

     Because of the HOPE Grant that is funded by the Georgia Lottery, students enrolled in any diploma or certificate program at Pickens Tech can come to school FREE. The Director of Financial Aid assists students in finding ways to finance their education through: HOPE Grants, Pell Grants, Georgia Students Incentive Grants, Veteran Benefits, Work Study programs, Job Training Partnership Act, and Post secondary Options.

     Industry specific training courses may be customized to meet a company's specific training needs and may be offered at the company location or at the Pickens Tech campus. Courses may be skill oriented such as welding, blueprint reading, computerized drafting, etc. Courses may include productivity and supervisory training, and other programs which assist companies implementing Word Class Manufacturing.

     Specialized training courses, such as Programmable Logic Controllers, preventive maintenance, hydraulics and pneumatics, and safety training are also available. Employers with training needs in a specific area may send employees to existing courses on campus day or evening. These employees may take a specific job related portion of a curriculum.

     The diploma program is divided into four areas: Business and Computer, Trade, Technical, and Health Occupations. Dalton College offers certain classes at Pickens Tech in the night school.
