There’s nothing like that first time you ease into the seat of a new car and grasp the steering wheel. How does it fit? How does it feel? Like purchasing a car, entering higher education can be a significant investment. It would be imprudent not to try it out before buying. Right?
Now those interested in trying out Piedmont Technical College can take selected classes out for a two-week spin at no cost as part of “Test Drive PTC.” The new program offers an opportunity to take a test drive via one of two educational routes ― industrial technology or health care. PTC is offering its first Test Drive Tuesday and Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. beginning April 10, with a Saturday session at 10 a.m. on April 21, all at the Lex Walters Campus in Greenwood.
Those completing the Industrial Technology sessions will earn certification in forklift operation. Those completing the Health Care sessions will earn certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR.
