Welcome to the Tennessee College of Applied Technology – McMinnville!  Our faculty and staff are proud to serve Warren and its surrounding counties with short-term, thorough hands-on training that results in high-demand and high-paying jobs.  Our completion, placement, and licensure rates demonstrate our commitment and ability to help you achieve your goals. We are dedicated to supporting you as a student and ensuring your success.

Our website is here to support you, but the website is only one resource.  Our friendly staff will be glad to work with you personally as you navigate the enrolment process. Feel free to reach out to any of us at any time.  We love to welcome visitors to our campus; we believe that when you see what we have to offer, you will not want to wait to start your classes here. 

Many financial aid opportunities are available for students. We will work with you to see what financial aid you can receive.  Thanks to Tennessee’s generosity, Tennessee Promise and TCAT Reconnect help many students attend tuition free. Even if you already hold a degree, TCAT Reconnect funds are still available to you to attend here and obtain a new skill. 

If you are considering learning a new skill or advancing your current skills, this is the place to be. We are here to help you reach your dreams!
