Piedmont Technical College recently signed an articulation agreement with Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College that will allow students to complete two years of coursework at PTC, and transfer to the South Georgia college to complete their bachelor’s degree.
When Piedmont Technical College’s faculty and staff consider new program offerings, they look closely at the skills and training that will help students fill real employment needs in the region. The college’s latest offering is no exception.
PTC is now expanding access to in demand training through a new occupational therapy assistant program, which will be housed at the college’s state-of-the-art facility in Newberry.
