Delta Technical College History

Delta Technical College is a year-round school providing vocational training in mechanical trades and allied health career fields where job growth is expected.

Midwest Technical Institute, Delta Tech’s sister school, was founded in 1995 in Lincoln, Illinois. Since opening its doors as Delta Technical College in 2004, Delta Tech has achieved many milestones, including receiving national accreditation by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) for its course offerings, and expanding our programs and courses beyond the original welding program.

Delta Tech has always taken great pride in touching the lives of students by giving them the hands-on workforce training they need to be successful. After over twenty years and thousands of students, that goal has remained the same.

The Skills Gap: Discover a Career Path in the Skilled Trades

The massive shortage of skilled workers in the U.S. has created new opportunities in a variety of industries that rely on skilled trade workers.

Delta Technical College (DTC) partnered with Viewpoint to share the message of how trade schools are helping address the massive U.S. skills gap—and why you should consider a career in the skilled trades now more than ever.

DTC offers workforce training that provides graduates with the skills necessary to gain entry-level employment in their chosen career field. DTC’s mission is to change lives by giving graduates a set of skills they can utilize for a lifetime to pursue a rewarding career path. DTC offers a diverse mix of skilled trades programs, including mechanical trades, healthcare, cosmetology, and truck driving. DTC believes that by learning a trade, you can take advantage of the growing skilled worker shortage and transition from short-term job to lifelong career.
