Full-Time Adult Education

~/assets/uploads/schools/bristol/images/AdultEd.jpgBristol Technical Education Center offers a variety of full-time adult education programs as well as part-time evening programs.

We offer six full-time programs:

Automotive Technology
Culinary Arts
Electronics Technology
Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning Refrigeration
Precision Machining Technology
Welding and Metal Fabrication

Our programs run from September to June and all programs are completed in one year, except for our two-year HVAC program. If you want to return for a different technical pathway, you have to re-apply for another program for the following school year.

Application Process
Adult education students complete an application that includes a resume and GED or high school transcript. We accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, however all students must complete a 900-hour program starting at the end of August and finishing in June. Upon submitting an application, students will be contacted to schedule a day to shadow in their selected program and be interviewed.

As an adult education student, you will receive a certificate stating that you completed the 900-hour required program.


The tuition rate for the post-graduate programs at Bristol TEC is $2,000 per semester (2 semesters per year)  plus a $50.00 registration fee per academic year.

Financial Aid
Financial Aid is available through Federal Pell Grants. Pell Grant Instructions
