Piedmont Technical College was recently chosen to join the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, a national effort to help 10,000 baby boomers earn degrees or certificates in high-demand fields.
PTC’s focus is on training and preparing Plus 50 adults for work and placement in health related occupations across our service area. The program is sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges.
