Technical Institute Becoming Part of Camden County College
The Technical Institute of Camden County (TICC) – which has provided career and occupational education to adults at Camden County Technical Schools since 1969 – will be a part of This change, in conjunction with CCC assuming oversight of the Camden County Regional Emergency Training Center and the Camden County Police Academy, brings all county-funded postsecondary education together under one institutional administration. The realignment benefits students in that some of the programs offered by the TICC will now be eligible for college credit.
"We are extremely proud of the quality of education at both the College and Camden County Technical Schools and know their value in these economic times, when specific skill sets in technology and career training programs can help County residents land jobs in a very tight job market," said Camden County Freeholder Ian K. Leonard. "Moving these courses under the College's umbrella will add many new offerings to the College's programs and make them easier for residents to access. "It also is a logical next step in the transformation process the County has been involved in for the past three years. An added and important benefit is that the move will save taxpayer dollars by eliminating duplication of offerings." TICC apprenticeship programs include carpentry, electrical, HVAC, plumbing and welding. Career and trade training is offered in carpentry technology, woodworking, electrical technology, residential electrical, commercial electrical, electrical license preparation, HVAC, plumbing technology, welding, auto collision repair/refinishing, automotive technology and water/wastewater management. Other training prepares students for careers as certified medical assistants, dialysis technicians and hospital unit coordinators or in culinary arts/restaurant operations and cosmetology/hairstyling. TICC's apprentice programs comply with all federal and state Department of Labor guidelines. TICC is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, the New Jersey State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling, Print Industries of America, the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation and the Consumer Electronics Manufacturers' Association as well. Daytime and evening courses in nearly two dozen occupation-specific subjects are scheduled this fall on the Camden County Technical Schools' Sicklerville Campus.
