Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) is a member of Georgia’s system of technical colleges that operate under the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and an institution of higher learning that provides occupational education, skills training, and workforce development to support the educational, economic, and community development of nine counties across northwestern Georgia, for which its five campuses in Walker County Campus, Floyd County Campus, Gordon County Campus, Polk County Campus, and Whitfield-Murray Campus are respectively named.
These campuses were originally part of Coosa Valley Technical College (CVTC), begun in 1962. It was named for the Coosa River, which flows through Rome, where its main campus is located. Northwestern Technical College (NTC) is now the Walker County campus, located in Rock Spring in extreme northwest Georgia. This occurred after a 2009 merger which also affected several other TCSG schools.
GNTC accomplishes its mission by providing quality technical and related academic education, customized business and industry training, continuing education, and adult education services that meet the workforce needs of area citizens, communities, and companies.
