Hill College is hosting ‘Let’s Get Technical,’ an interactive open house for its technical education programs, on Thursday, April 14, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm at its Johnson County Campus and Cleburne Technical Center.

The event is an opportunity for the public to learn more about the technical degrees and certifications available at Hill College including automotive technology, child development, criminal justice, cosmetology, computer science, office and business administration, health sciences, HVAC, industrial maintenance, fire protection technology, welding and more.

“Everyone is welcome to attend who is interested in obtaining information about Hill College’s technical programs and the benefits of receiving this kind of training for today’s workforce,” said Scott Glasscock, Hill College’s student services recruitment specialist.

A shuttle will be available to transport attendees to and from the Johnson County Campus and Cleburne Technical Center for tours, and refreshments will be available at both locations. As part of the tour, attendees will be able to view and use state-of-the-art equipment from various trade programs.

“Most visitors are surprised at the type of equipment we have to offer,” said Hill College Dean of Health and Public Service Pathways, Lori Moseley. “Attendees can expect to see hands-on and simulation tools in different programs. Cosmetology will be out showing some of the skills they have learned, and an ambulance, fire truck and possibly a helicopter will be available.”

Course instructors, current students and other college staff will be on site to answer questions about programs, campus life, financial assistance, and applying to Hill College. Attendees will also be able to register for door prizes.

“It’s important to make the public aware of technical education opportunities conveniently located near them, as well as to normalize the idea that a technical certification is just as important as a college degree,” Glasscock said. “There will always be a need for tradespeople, and their pay can be comparable to jobs requiring a college degree.”
