ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One south Georgia technical school says you don't have to travel very far to jumpstart your career.

Whether students look to be future medical professionals, or chefs, Albany Tech says they're a good start.

On Saturday , visitors toured the campus and got a chance to experience many of it's academic programs first hand.

"They have different opportunities, career programs that you can get into to further your education," Alicia Maddox, Albany Tech Student.

This afternoon the school showcased the more than two dozen academic programs they offer.

"They can talk to an instructor, see some of the materials they'll work with, just have an opportunity to ask questions, and find out what they really want to do," said Linda Cauley, Dental Asst. Program Instructor.

"I can further my career, in cosmetology, because I like doing hair," said Maddox.

Cosmetology, Computers Information systems, and Dental Assisting, already had some looking and signing up to further their education closer to home.

"We realize in our community we have a lot of teens, and at some point will be making a decisions in the next few years about careers, we what them to see what Albany Tech has to offer," said Cauley.

"It's very good for the students so they can go in and have an opportunity to see what's going on in the different programs out here today," said Maddox.

Programs like Dental Assisting.

"They take radiographs, they do patient education, the work one on one, with the dentist providing services, they work in the front office, they work for dental labs, so it encompasses every aspect of the dental office," said Cauley.
