High school students are also provided the opportunity for enrollment in as early as their sophomore year.
FETC currently serves the West Virginia counties of Lewis, Barbour, and Upshur. The Technical Center, itself, is located in Buckhannon, WV.FETC has under 200 enrollees (as of 2012) in programs such as Electrical Technology, Computer Repair, Automotive Technology, and Building Construction, among others. Healthcare-related courses are also offered in the form of year-long programs that include training in Healthcare concepts and fundamentals. There is also the LPN (Licensed Practical Nursing) program which is funded by the West Virginia Department of Education and conducted with the help of affiliate institutions including William R.
