Furthermore, through the Office of Economic Development, GNTC offers flexibility to employers by providing customized workforce training, both for immediate and future needs.

Most training offered through the Office of Economic Development is flexible, short-term, delivered anywhere, and non-credit. Non-credit means upon completing training, the student is not receiving a Technical Certificate of Credit, Technical Diploma, or Associate of Applied Science Degree—which are our accredited program awards—but instead receive a Certificate of Completion from GNTC, and in some cases, obtain an industry-recognized credential. Non-credit also means certain federal and state financial aid programs are not applicable.
