College of Trades, Industry and Professional Studies
After nearly 100 years of training students how to weld, fix cars and repair heating and cooling systems on a city block in downtown Denver, Emily Griffith Technical College (EGTC) has a new facility to teach programs in the College of Trades, Industry and Professional Studies. EGTC also offers several non-credit programs in the newly renovated building, which occupies nearly 50,000 square feet of space at 1205 Osage St. in the La Alma Lincoln Park neighborhood in northwest Denver.
We're Open for Denver Business
This new state-of-the-art campus opens the doors of opportunity in eight, highly-technical career certificates – automotive collision repair, automotive service, building trades technology, computer-aided drafting-building information modeling (CAD/BIM), custodial maintenance, heating/ventilation/air conditioning and refrigeration, water quality management and welding.
In addition, many classes from EGTC’s growing Continuing Education Division will relocate to this facility. These programs include blacksmithing, clock repair, furniture and auto upholstery and welding for artists.
The Emily Griffith Foundation is establishing a dedicated scholarship for eligible community residents interested in pursuing a career training certificate at EGTC.
One of the primary criteria for the new location was good access to public transportation. The location at 1205 Osage St. is within two and three blocks of two light rail stations, the Auraria and the 10th Ave. and Osage St. stations, and one block from two bus stops along 13th Ave. There will also be parking provided for staff and students at the facility. This location is also less than two miles from the new downtown Emily Griffith Campus at 1860 Lincoln St.
Each career training program meets industry education standards set forth by various professional organizations. As a result, students are trained to the highest standards and graduates celebrate some of the highest completion and job placement rates in the state of Colorado.
