Alaska Vocational Technical Center

Alaska Vocational Technical Center (locally known as "AVTEC") is Alaska's "Institute of Technology" and is located in Seward, Alaska. It is a public vocational school that offers hands-on, project-based learning in various vocations and technical trades designed to prepare students for entry into the job market upon graduation.

AVTEC offers students the opportunity to earn a degree or technical certificate in many high-demand professions including Accounting Specialist, Administrative Assistant, Contruction Technology, Cooking and Baking, Practical Nursing, Plumbing and Heating, Information Technology, Combination Welding, Nursing Asistant, Master/Mate, and more. The technical programs at AVTEC teach real-world skills that are directly applicable and immediately relevant in the career field.

Even though AVTEC isn't a large university, financial aid is available for qualifying students. Students seeking financial assistance may receive grants, departmental scholarships or student loans. For veterans and a few minority groups, there are special financial assistance plans and tuition waiver.

Since AVTEC provides a hands-on, project-based learning experience, students will undertake and work on projects that are similar in scope and nature to what they'll be tackling in the real world once they graduate and find a job. Nursing students at AVTEC work with real patients in a clinical environment. Maritime students navigate real boats in the ocean. Students completing a cooking degree or training program will prepare real meals for students and faculty in the school's cafeteria.

In addition an exceptional educational offering, AVTEC provides students with mentoring, tutoring, academic advising and career placement services.
