OCTC's Tech X initiative is a multi-craft technologist program that offers hands-on training in a real-world, industrial environment. Tech X is short for “Tech eXpress” as this program can be completed in 7 to 9 months. 

Multi-Craft Technologists will be preparing for a journey into life-long learning and adjusting as technology changes. Foundations in Robotics, Machine Tool, Welding, Fabrication and Material Handling will be progressive and participating students will earn a Gas Welder Certificate, Arc Cutter Certificate, Production Line Welder Certificate and a Forklift Operators Certificate upon completion of the coursework.

Two tracks are offered that provide flexibility for a variety of non-traditional, time-challenged adults. The daytime option will allow students to attend classes eight hours per day, three days per week for a seven-month period. The evening option will allow students to attend classes four hours per evening, four nights per week for a nine-month period.

Students will also receive concierge-like services from a Career Navigator/Success Coach who will counsel them about financial aid and job placement options available to them.
