President's Message


Welcome to Davis Technical College! We’re glad you found us. Since 1978, we’ve been training people for high skill, high wage, high demand jobs that lead to rewarding careers. A certificate of completion from a Davis Tech program means something in the workplace, which makes it a genuine ticket to opportunity.

Davis Tech is a public technical college 󠆖– one of eight that make up the Utah System of Technical Colleges (UTech) – and probably a lot different from the traditional academic colleges you may know. Yet, these differences are what make us highly efficient and effective, potentially saving you significant time and money on your journey toward a job, a career, or even additional education:

  • We are competency-based. We teach concrete, measurable skills that are in-demand and industry-validated. We value what you already know, advancing you forward as you demonstrate your skill mastery.
  • We are open-entry and flexible. You can start most of our programs within days of being admitted. And, together we’ll design a schedule that works for you, making us a great option for working students.
  • We are affordable. Our mission is to provide job training at low cost. We offer affordable tuition to full-time adult students, and high school students pay just $40 a year. If you can’t afford to attend, chances are we can find a way to help through scholarships and other financial aid.

In addition, we articulate with other schools so that your work at Davis Tech transfers toward a degree at Weber State University, Utah State University, Salt Lake Community College, or LDS Business College. Many of our programs possess specific accreditations, while Davis Tech enjoys national accreditation by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education.

All of this is possible because of the support of the Utah Legislature, UTech, the Davis Tech Board of Directors, our Foundation Board, many exceptional employer and community partners, and our world-class faculty and staff.

I invite you to pay us a visit. Let us show you why Davis Technical College may be right for you and how we are true to our motto of “We change lives.”
