The BTC is a cooperative effort between the college district and the following local manufacturers: DuPont, Nichols Aluminum, JDDW, North Star Steel Co., Litton Industries, IPSCO, Packaging Technologies and Sears Manufacturing.
Studies continue to show a dramatic need for skilled employees in the advanced manufacturing areas. The need has been driven to an extremely high priority by retiring baby boomers and Iowa's shrinking labor force, making the Blong Technology Center an important resource for eastern Iowa.
The center offers industrial courses in a variety of specific skill areas such as welding, CNC, Pro-engineering, drafting, blueprint reading, computer skills, math, problem solving, sheet metal work and many others.
The BTC provides skills-specific training and development, workplace skills assessments, continuing education courses, computer-delivered certification and professional licensure tests, distance learning and computerized educational and career guidance counseling.
The goal of the BTC is to support the economic future of eastern Iowa manufacturers through human resource, technology and industry development. Both credit and non-credit (adult, continuing education) classes and training are offered and integrated at the center.
