About Us

President's Message
Welcome to Lanier Technical College!

Our website is designed to assist you in discovering the many educational opportunities available here at Lanier Tech as well as to keep you informed on the latest news and upcoming events at our college. I encourage you to take time to explore each page within this site. I feel confident you will find a program or service that meets your need.

Our mission can be summed up in two words: “workforce development.” We do workforce development through our instructional programs, through contract and continuing education training, and through adult education. All our programs are designed to meet the specific needs of business and industry throughout our seven county service area.

Lanier Technical College proudly offers 155 programs of study including 31 associate degree programs, 38 diploma programs, and 86 technical certificate of credit programs. Programs are available in Allied Health, Business and Computer Technology, Industrial and Technical studies, and Professional Services.

Our Economic Development Services provide industry specific continuing education courses are offered in many areas including ammonia refrigeration, robotics, programmable logic controllers, rapid 3D prototyping, and many other industry specific areas. Lanier Tech houses Georgia’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center which provides industry with training using state of the art equipment. Lanier Tech is also home to the Manufacturing Development Center which serves as a business incubator responsible for creating hundreds of new jobs over the past few years.

Lanier Technical College, working with area Certified Literate Community Programs (CLCP), offers adult education courses for individuals wishing to obtain their high school equivalency diploma.

Our courses are offered using a variety of instructional delivery models such as on-line, traditional classroom, and hybrid formats. Our faculty members are extremely dedicated and are among the most qualified in higher education. Not only are they equipped with excellent educational credentials, but they are practitioners with years of real-world experience in the field in which they teach.

We hope to have you visit one of our five campuses in Oakwood, Cumming, Winder, Dawsonville, and Commerce; or one of over 20 adult learning centers in the very near future to learn more about how Lanier Technical College can help you meet your educational needs. We are proud to carry out our mission of workforce development throughout Georgia’s beautiful Lake Lanier Region in Banks, Barrow, Dawson, Forsyth, Hall, Jackson, and Lumpkin Counties.

Again, thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to serving you soon.

Dr. Ray Perren, President
