Redmond Technology Education Center
The Redmond Technology Education Center is located on the corner of Veterans Way and Salmon Drive, across from the Redmond Airport. The 34,000-square-foot building houses technology-centered programs that allows students to train for current and future family-wage jobs. The $12.5 M building was designed by BBT Architects and built by Kirby Nagelhout Construction company. The Center opened for Fall 2014 classes.
An essential aspect of COCC's vision for the facility is its adaptability for future needs. Ten years from now and beyond, the facility will be able to support training in technologies that are unknown today. To provide this flexibility, the Technology Education Center was designed with modifiable spaces as well as expansion space and large exterior access doors to allow for removing old and installing new equipment.
Veterinary Technician Program
The Veterinary Technician degree is an intensive, full time, two-year veterinary nursing program. Not only will you gain real world experience outside of class, our 10,000 sq. ft. hands-on veterinary technician training facility in Redmond will allow you to immerse yourself in all aspects of animal care. Students who are accepted into the Veterinary Technician program go through their terms together, attending the lectures, labs and other activities as a group. If you love helping animals (as well as their owners), then this program will give you a step above the rest.
The Veterinary Technician Program is accredited by the American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA) as a program for educating veterinary technicians.
Automotive Technology Program
A two-year degree option in Automotive Technology in Electronics and Diagnostics (TED) is offered at the Redmond Technology Education Center. This degree emphasizes electric and hybrid power systems, clean diesel and on-board vehicle networking knowledge needed to repair the continually evolving electronics in today's vehicles. The automotive program occupies a large percentage of the space in the Technology Education Center.
This degree will be in addition to the current master automotive technician certificate and an associate degree in automotive management, with an emphasis on electrical systems. The COCC Automotive Technology program was re-accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation in the spring of 2013.
