Bidwell Training Center

The Bidwell Training Center was originally established in 1968 in response to the demands for jobs for minorities in the 1960s. After revamping their vision in the 1980s, the BTC began working with businesses to design majors that would satisfy the current employment needs in the marketplace. It is a school dedicated to providing career training and academic enrichment opportunities to adults in transition. Majors include Chemical Laboratory Technician, Culinary Arts, Horticulture Technology and Medical. The BTC has since expanded with its Harbor Gardens Park Facility and the Drew Mathieson Center for Horticulture and Technology. In 2012, BTC was one of 17 ACCSC schools to receive the prestigious 2012 ACCSC School of Excellence Award.
