Founded in 1965, IntelliTec Colleges are a system of vocational schools offering career training services to the people of Colorado. The school has three campuses located in Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, and Pueblo. Students may seek hands-on career training in a number of different fields including beauty, business, exercise and wellness, health care, technical trades, and computer networking. IntelliTec Colleges award professional certifications or associate degrees depending upon the program completed. Certificate programs are available to be completed in as little as nine months, while associate degrees may be obtained in 18 months.
IntelliTec Colleges are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.
IntelliTec Colleges employ faculty with real-world experience in the fields which they teach. They aim to produce graduates who are skilled and employable. Faculty members use classroom instruction combined with hands-on educational experiences to train students with the practical knowledge and skills they will need to enter the job market. Class sizes remain small, allowing for personalized instruction.
Student life at IntelliTec Colleges is mostly comprised of classroom and lab encounters. The schools are commuter-based and do not offer on-campus housing. Classes are offered both during the day and in the evening, providing year-round flexible class scheduling. Students can expect to engage in hands-on, focused, career training with few general education requirements. Programs at IntelliTec may be completed in 9-18 months of study. At some locations, student cosmetology salons and massage clinics allow enrolled students to hone their skills on live clients. IntelliTec's Career Services Department assists students with job search techniques, resume and interview preparation, and job placement.
