Albany --Hundreds of people in South Georgia may have taken their first steps into the technical field today.
Albany Technical College held its annual Family and Friends Day event. Prospective students got a chance to see what classes are offered with hands-on displays.
Some say the showcase really helps them decide if learning new skills will help them advance in the future.
"It seems like everything's going pretty well. There's a lot of information and it's very helpful so far. I've only been here for a little bit, but it seems pretty nice," said Kennedy Williams.
"This is an opportunity for people to come to see the programs we have, the associate degrees, the diplomas, certificates, the adult literacy program, and see the value added that we can provide to the community," said school president Anthony Parker.
New programs at the school include biotechnology, telecommunications, and gerontology.
