Texas State Technical College: In the spring of 1989, the Community of Breckenridge turned to Texas State Technical Institute (TSTI) to open a campus in Breckenridge. Within a few months, the Legislature and the Governor of Texas approved the creation of the Rural Technology Center in Breckenridge. The technology center began classes in the fall of 1990 providing technical education to meet the needs of Texas business and industry. Now known as Texas State Technical College (TSTC), the Breckenridge campus is part of the state-wide system of technical colleges with a state-wide role and mission. The Breckenridge, Brownwood, Abilene, and Sweetwater campus are collectively referred to as TSTC West Texas.
The small, student-oriented campus in Breckenridge features certificates and Associate of Applied Science degrees for a variety of technical careers including: Chemical Dependency Counseling, Computer Aided Drafting & Design Technology, Digital Media & Design, Emergency Medical Services (EMT-Basic), Environmental Science Technology, Health Information Technology, Vocational Nursing, and Welding Technology.
