About the TCAT //

The Director

Dean Blevins


Thank you for visiting our web site and considering TCAT-Elizabethton as a possible training choice for your post secondary education.

For more than 50 years we have been providing quality instruction at an affordable price to many residents of East Tennessee and the surrounding region. In 2004 TCAT-Elizabethton was named as the "Exemplary Training Provider of the Year" by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission for students enrolled through the Workforce Investment Act. Literally every school in the state, both public and private, vied for this honor. We are proud of this accomplishment and will do all in our power to see that the high standards we set continue to be met by our students, faculty and staff.

We do not believe that our job is done once a student completes their training and receives a credential. We define success as not only providing quality instruction but seeing that our graduates are employed in the field in which they train. We are committed to this goal and promise that should you put your faith and trust in TCAT-Elizabethton, we will do all we can to see that you find employment in your area of training. We do believe that this school, along with its sister institutions, does change lives.

If you have decided that you need to return to school to gain skills training that will lead to a quality job, please consider TCAT-Elizabethton and allow us to help meet whatever goal you have set for your future career plans. We plan on being here another forty years and hopefully many more.
