Missouri State University-West Plains offers advanced technical training at 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 center provides 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, AHF Products, Caterpillar, and L & R Industries helped develop the training programs to benefit manufacturers of all sizes.
