Workforce Training & Continuing Education


Texas State Technical College understands that technical education does not stop when you enter the workforce. Today’s competitive industry atmosphere requires continuous learning in order to keep up. TSTC has a dedicated team that works directly with industry contacts to provide “rapid-response,” customized training solutions for both your upskilling and onboarding needs.

We, at TSTC, can help. Our teammates work hard to stay abreast of the latest in technical training and have crafted “fast to work” skills courses to address a variety of industry needs across the state of Texas.


By partnering with area businesses and regional workforce entities to customize technical training programs, we’re here to help you strengthen your current employees skill set and/or prepare new ones to hit the ground running upon hire.
