In addition to providing exciting courses for high school students and award-winning business and industry training opportunities, Tulsa Tech also offers hundreds of part-time classes that allow students to pursue their individual career goals or simply explore a variety of interests. A wide assortment of class subjects includes everything from Early Child Care and Education to Taxidermy.
Perhaps you’re interested in earning hours towards an HVAC apprenticeship, CompTIA A+ Certification, becoming an armed security guard, or learning to upholster your car like a professional. We invite you to explore Tulsa Tech’s part-time class catalog and discover the class that’s right for you.
Although most part-time classes average 30 hours in length, according to Russell Parker, director of adult education and certifications, there are classes available to meet a variety of student schedules.
“The majority of our classes are offered Monday through Thursday, and usually last from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.,” Parker said. “But we also have classes where students receive a certification in a single session of eight hours or less.”
A staple of Tulsa Tech since 1965, the number of part-time offerings have not only increased but also have evolved to keep pace with today’s workplace training needs and reflect individual student interests related to current technologies.
“If we get a number of requests for a certain subject then we develop a class to meet that need,” Parker explained. “It all depends on the demand, and meeting workforce needs in the Tulsa Metro Area. For example, we are currently working on expanding offerings in plumbing, and adding pediatric phlebotomy to our health care classes, in order to meet the need for specific training in our community.”
Other courses are not just industry-driven, but provide students with more flexibility in completing their individual career objectives. One of our long-term courses, Pharmacy Technician, has been revised to focus on attaining certification which allows students who were unable to commit to a full-time program, the opportunity to reach their career goals much sooner.
All of Tulsa Tech’s part-time classes are taught by certified instructors who have not only worked in industry but also have years of valuable experience.
“It doesn’t matter if the class is related to improving your career skills, like computer applications training, or simply an interest in a new hobby like baking sweet and savory quick breads, our instructors have a professional background with experience related to each subject,” Parker said.
We encourage you to explore the opportunities part-time classes provide for you. From business and professional development programs to information technology certifications and creative arts, you’ll find something appealing in what we offer. Each of our part-time classes is designed with students just like you in mind.
Make this the year that you earn an industry recognized credential, upgrade your skills, or learn something new just for the fun of it!
