Stafford Technical Center

Stafford Technical Center is the second-largest regional career and technical center in Vermont and is proud to offer programs such as Digital Arts, Hospitality and Entrepreneurship, Culinary Arts, and a dozen others that have articulation agreements or dual-enrollment options for students interested in pursuing a college degree upon graduation. Adults are able to enroll in the day programs on a space available basis, but the Adult Technical Education program offers over 300 of its own on-site and online courses each semester in areas such as allied health, manufacturing, and information technology to name just a few. We have also been able to partner with a number of local and regional employers to develop sector-specific customized education and training programs leading to industry-recognized credentials or certifications in sectors that include: advanced manufacturing, allied health, and transportation and logistics. And finally, the Stafford Driver Training School is certified by the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles to deliver classroom and over-the-road training in its own vehicles to adults looking to earn a CDL-A or CDL-B license.
