Higher Education

Oconee Fall Line Technical College

Oconee Fall Line Technical College

Training institutions don’t usually back their work with a guarantee, but then business as usual doesn’t meet the standard at the Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC). Instead at OFTC, it’s business and industrial training as it needs to be for success in the 21st century, with curriculum standards developed in direct collaboration with area business and industry.  Should an employee who is a recent OFTC graduate (out two years or less) and his/her employer find that the graduate is deficient in one or more competencies defined in the standards, OFTC will retrain the employee at no instructional cost to the employee or employer. OFTC stands behind its instruction to keep Washington County industry and workers ahead of global competition.
