Bristol TEC also oversees two extension campuses each offering an exceptional program for Aviation Maintenance Technicians. Hartford Aero Tech, and the Stratford School for Aviation Maintenance Technicians. Information and applications can be obtained below:
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.
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.
