The goal of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology is to provide technical training to students to meet the occupational needs of employers in our community. Recognizing that all people do not have the same background, abilities, or desires and cannot be fitted into the same mold, the objective of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology is that each student be treated as an individual. Individualized instruction is utilized to the maximum in most programs. Our school policy provides that a student may enter a program when a vacancy occurs, start training at his/her own level, and progress at his/her own rate to the level desired within the limitations of the school. Individualized instruction provides the student with the highest quality instruction possible in the occupational area of his/her choosing.
The objective is further subscribed to that the mere development of specific skills and knowledge in an individual is not sufficient. Desirable worker characteristics are emphasized to instill character development, good work habits, reliability, honesty, and respect for authority needed for a productive society.
The primary purpose of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology - Hohenwald is to more adequately meet the occupational and technical training needs of citizens and residents of this geographic area including employees of existing or prospective industries and businesses of the State.
The college fulfills this mission by providing instructional programs to train or retrain persons for employment. Programs are designed to update existing skills and increase knowledge of workers already employed.
