The Pulaski County Area Technology Center (ATC) is starting our 11th year of providing career and technical education to the students of the Somerset/Pulaski County area. Presently, we offer technical skills training in the areas of Automotive Technology, Health Sciences, Construction Carpentry, Industrial Maintenance, Natural Gas, and Welding.

We are consistently recognized for outstanding college and career readiness rates. Most recently, we were recognized this summer for ranking 6th in the state among technical centers for our College and Career Readiness rate of 84%. We encourage all of our students to obtain a college education due to the skill level and training necessary for success in today’s global economy. Many of our courses are eligible for dual college credit or articulation to post-secondary institutions. We are there for our students every step of the way from assisting with scholarship searches and applications to helping students entering the workforce directly out of high school with job searches and recommendations for employment.

We are pleased to announce dual credit opportunities for seniors this school year. Students interested should talk with their teachers.
