It is my pleasure to welcome you to Bridgerland Applied Technology College (BATC). We are one of the eight colleges that comprise the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT). We serve the Bear River Region, which encompasses Box Elder, Cache, and Rich counties in northern Utah, and includes secondary schools from the Box Elder, Cache, Logan, and Rich school districts.
Bridgerland Applied Technology College generally offers open-entry/open-exit, competency-based skills training, allowing high school and adult students to master required skills at their personal learning pace. We offer training at no tuition for high school students and low tuition for adult students. BATC offers Certificates directly associated with expanding skill level or preparing individuals for entry-level employment in current and emerging occupations.
Our professional faculty is fully committed and prepared to ensure that each student is afforded the best opportunity to achieve highest skill levels possible for success in their chosen training area. Our “Employment Through Training” philosophy has proven effective over the decades in consistent job placement rates of 90 percent or higher.
A major contributor to our success has been the close working relationship we enjoy with business and industry in the region. The input of program-specific local industry advisory committees has allowed us to develop industry-standard quality curriculum. This, coupled with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, has resulted in Bridgerland being recognized as one of the flagship regional colleges in the Utah College of Applied Technology system.
Please feel free to visit us and discuss your technical education plans with our qualified staff. As you review this catalog, I am confident that you will find a comprehensive program that will meet your needs. I am excited about the opportunities we offer our students, and I sincerely hope that your experience at Bridgerland Applied Technology College will be meaningful and rewarding. I wish you the best in your training and look forward to serving you.
