The Technical College System of Georgia has developed curricula standards with direct involvement of business and industry. These standards serve as the industry-validated specifications for each occupational program.

These standards allow Georgia's 33 technical colleges to offer their business partners this guarantee:

"If one of our graduates, who was educated under a standard program, and his or her employer agree that the employee is deficient in one or more competencies as defined in the standards, Albany Technical College will retrain that employee at no instructional cost to the employee or employer."

This guarantee applies to all graduates of ATC who are employed in the field of their training. It is in effect for a period of two years after graduation.
