Advanced Technical Training
Missouri State University-West Plains offers advanced technical training at the PACE Industrical Science Center and the Greater Ozarks Center for Advanced Technology (GOCAT). Individuals can complete credit and non-credit degree and certificate programs in technology or participate in customized training opportunities.
The centers provide advanced, hands-on manufacturing training to individuals–from high school age through adulthood–who are looking to expand their skills in a technical field.
Major manufacturers of our area, such as Leonardo DRS, Jasper Engines, Caterpillar, and L & R Industries helped develop the training programs to benefit manufacturers of all sizes.
