Trident Technical College (TTC) is a vital component of the SC Technical College System which consists of 16 two-year colleges that offer both credit and degree-earning courses as well as CEU-earning continuing education courses. Also part of the SC Technical College System is Apprenticeship Carolina and readySC, two integral entities that provide workforce enhancing services.


Our goal in TTC's Division of Apprenticeships and Employer Partnerships is to learn about your company’s role in our community, any organizational challenges you are experiencing, and alert you to opportunities for employee growth and development by using Trident Technical College’s business and educational services. There is funding available for many of these opportunities and we want to help you stretch your training budget.


Our Services


Employee Training

Our team is available to meet with your company’s stakeholders to discuss employee training opportunities that could benefit your organization. The differences and benefits of credit vs. noncredit training would be explored along with logistical options available for training which can be held on your company property or at a Trident Technical College campus.


Apprenticeships: Adult and Youth

We can help you identify areas of your organization that could benefit from the development or expansion of youth and adult apprenticeship programs. An apprenticeship is a combination of paid on-the-job training and job-related instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation. Adult and youth apprenticeships help get future workers in the pipeline so they can get the training they need to qualify for jobs that are in demand and hard to fill in your organization.


Deferred Tuition Reimbursement

Let us help streamline your educational accounting processes by grouping your employees into a Deferred Tuition Reimbursement Program. This allows your employees to enroll in classes now and pay later at the end of the semester.


Enterprise Zone Act (EZA)

The Enterprise Zone Act makes manufacturers’ training budgets go even further by allowing you to recoup up to 67% of the money spent on training eligible employees. It covers a range of topics such as learning how to use newly installed equipment, newly implemented technology, new or improved processes and safety refreshers.
