There are four major divisions of programs at NTI:
The Diploma Programs offer post secondary programs to provide training to enter a recognized occupation. These programs generally range from nine to eighteen months, combining classroom instruction with practical skills taught in a lab or practicum setting.
The Secondary Career Center (SCC) is a secondary career and technology center that serves the public schools in Northwest Arkansas. We provide training for current high school students to earn high school credit in career and technical fields.
The Adult Education seeks to upgrade the general educational level of adults in the community. This is accomplished through instruction leading to an Arkansas high school diploma, through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, and through classes to upgrade basic skills to meet the changing needs of society. These services are free.
The Community Education training sector provides short-term, non-credit courses in a variety of areas. The objectives of these classes may be to upgrade occupational skills and knowledge, introduce new skills, or enhance leisure activities.
The qualified instructional staff at Northwest Technical Institute provides students the opportunity, challenge, and training to meet their individual needs in today's world of advancing technology.
We hope that you will capitalize on the opportunities provided here to meet your career objective. The administration and support staff are here to assist you in any way we can to make your time spent here enjoyable and personally rewarding.
