The BCATC has a reputation of excellence around the state, and is a centerpiece of our efforts to market the county to prospective businesses. A leader in career and technical education, the BCATC recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion. This investment created larger machining classrooms, double the number of welding booths, and allowed for the addition of a brand new Industrial Maintenance program.
