    Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center Announces Summer Open House Series for Adult Education & Free Application

    (Altoona, PA)  The Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center announces its summer open house series, Walk-in Wednesdays. During the Wednesday open houses, individuals interested in adult education programs can visit GACTC to learn about the various programs and financial aid options, including Veterans benefits, and tour the facility.

    Each Wednesday, beginning June 12th through August 7th, from 11 am to 2 pm, faculty and staff will provide information about the 30-plus programs offered at the GACTC including Practical Nursing, Medical Assistant, Administrative and Medical Office Specialist, Expanded Function Dental Assistant, Phlebotomy, Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, and Welding. Many of these programs offer industry-valued certifications. During the open houses, representatives will assist individuals to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the admission application.

    Additionally, in response to the needs of the community members in the region that need additional training through hands-on, highly quality career and technical education, GACTC has waived the application fee for its continuing education programs (except for the Practical Nursing program).

    To learn more about the Walk-in Wednesday open houses beginning June 12th (11 am to 2 pm), the programs offered at GACTC, or to schedule an individual appointment, please call 941-TECH or visit GACTC.edu.
