Who, Where, and What We Are

As a vital member of Washington’s higher education system, Clover Park Technical College offers more than 40 programs grouped into seven schools: Advanced Manufacturing; Aerospace and Aviation; Automotive and Trades; Business and Personal Services; Health and Human Development; Nursing; and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Design. Clover Park Technical College has two campuses: our main campus in Lakewood and our South Hill Campus just south of Puyallup (adjacent to Thun Field), where our aviation programs are located.

CPTC is here to help students redefine education to meet their needs. The college offers courses online and on campus for students getting ready for their first career, their next step within their career, or a new career. While the college has been part of the Pierce County community since the 1940s, its program and course offerings are consistently reevaluated to provide the most relevant and innovative training for in-demand career areas.
