Students Serving the Public

The Tech Center Marketplace is the collection of public services offered by our programs and available for you for a modest fee.  Actual customer experiences help students as they learn to become professionals in their fields.  Using these services also provides a great way for the community to connect with Tech Center students.  It's fun to interact with our students! 

Please be aware that these services and products are available on a limited basis because they must fit into the lesson plans and calendar of our programs.  We hope you will be patient with us and ask that you always call the program to confirm the availability of the service you are interested in.
