About

Our students succeed here.

Bristol Technical Education Center provides a diverse student population with a safe environment that promotes community interaction and student learning, which is engaging and prepares them for business and industry as entry-level professionals.

Adult, eleventh- and twelfth-grade students come here from 42 towns to learn a technology and become a part of our family-like community. Adult students (high school diploma or GED required) attend our full-time day programs to earn a 900-hour technology certificate.  Unlike our other technical high schools, Bristol TEC students remain a part of their sending schools and can participate in sporting events or musical groups. If attending Bristol TEC senior year, students will receive a diploma from their sending school and still participate in our year-end certificate ceremony. We offer the best of both worlds.

We offer six trade technologies including:
Automotive Technology
Culinary Arts
Electronics Technology
Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning/Refrigeration
Precision Machining Technology
Welding and Metal Fabrication

We also offer adult apprentice and extension part-time evening courses during the fall and spring semesters.
