We were all hopeful that disruptions to the economy due to COVID-19 would be minimal. However, it has caused a displacement of workers in the Southwest Georgia labor force. I am confident that working together, our economy will return stronger than ever. The impact from the pandemic will likely present a new normal, and Albany Technical College is here to assist our community as we transition and embrace the changes.

A significant number of jobs have been lost, and some members of the labor force have been impacted more than others. Our shifting economy minimally affects the more secure members of the labor force, as well as those who can transition rapidly into another high demand, well-paying job.

We want you to know that Albany Technical College is here to assist you during these changing times. Please contact our admissions counselors if you find yourself associated with an industry that has to reduce its workforce substantially. Our counselors are available to assist you in planning for a career change and educational opportunities that are recession resistant. We offer certificate programs that can be completed in eight weeks, diploma programs within one year, and associate degree programs within two years. We also provide prior learning credits for those who qualify.
