In 1995 while working as welders, Delta Tech founders Brian Huff and Mike Casper noticed something in the workforce around them: a need for better welding training. There were opportunities for training, but none that were offered locally. In an effort to solve that problem, Mike and Brian founded Delta Technical College.
Delta Tech was founded in 1995 in Lincoln, Illinois, initially operating out of a small facility. Over the next 12 years, Delta Tech achieved many milestones such as receiving national accreditation for its course offerings and adding additional programs outside of welding.
By the time January of 2007 arrived, Delta Tech realized it had outgrown its current campus space and needed to move into a larger space. Delta Tech relocated its campus to Springfield, Illinois, to the facility where it currently resides in today.
Since the first time the campus doors opened in Lincoln, Illinois in 1995, Delta Tech has taken great pride in touching thousands of lives by making.
Our mission is to offer workforce training that will provide graduates with the skills necessary to gain entry level employment in their chosen field.
