Each year, over 500 high school and adult students enroll in programs to gain the knowledge and skills they need to find success in life.

In addition to providing programs for the emergent workforce, Pioneer Technology Center provides an array of services for existing companies, start-up businesses, and industries relocating into their service area; as well as adults who want to update or enhance existing job skills. Because they are a part of a statewide network of technology centers, they have access to an unlimited pool of expertise that can help companies be more profitable through increased efficiency, quality standards, and certifications that qualify them to work nationally and, in some cases, internationally. Each year over 8,000 individuals take advantage of these offerings that, in turn, enhance the area's business climate and economy, providing an increased number of jobs within the district.

Along with quality occupationally specific programs, Pioneer Technology Center offers programs that allow students to find success in core academic subjects. Through the ABE/GED program, adult students without a high school diploma can gain the knowledge needed to earn a GED. Students whose native language is not English can take advantage of English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. For high school students at risk of not earning a high school diploma, PTC works with partnering K-12 schools to provide academic enhancement and credit recovery opportunities to assist them in meeting graduation requirements.
