When the term economic development is overheard, the immediate rationale is for someone to think about a business expansion, capital projects, or new industry. While all of those are correct, they don’t fully define what economic development is at Southern Regional Technical College. Right here in Moultrie – Colquitt County there is a vital, valuable resource available to our entire business and industry community that many individuals are not fully aware of, and that is the Economic Development Division at Southern Regional Technical College.
Though this division of SRTC shares the name with the Economic Development Authority, this resource differs from the Economic Development Authority. The economic development staff at SRTC is dedicated to providing the necessary training for local business and industry to keep them competitive in today’s global economy. What exactly does that mean? It means you should think of SRTC as your go-to business consultant and training partner.
