"Changing hands and minds"
Welcome to the Dillon County Technology Center’s Website. Our goal at DCTC is to help students develop skills in their chosen career paths through the use of instruction, hands on activities, and real world application. Students who enter DCTC programs have a choice to select a program that they are most interested in and have the opportunity to join student organizations related to their field of study. These organizations are an excellent way to foster relationships with other schools, share with and learn from others, compete at the state and national levels, travel, and meet new people. For more information regarding the programs we offer including course descriptions and credit hours click on the course tab for more information. The administration has an open door policy and welcome our students and parents to come in and visit with us any time. We have some great opportunities for you to expand your knowledge. Let us guide you into a fantastic career based learning experience.
