Outstanding Programs & Full-Service Facilities

Northwest Technical College is more than books and classes. It’s a friendly learning environment in a modern building on a spacious, easy-to-get-to campus. Walk in the main entrance and straight ahead is the OneStop center where you can get started toward the career you want.

From there, it’s an easy walk to our Student Success Center, library, classrooms and state-of-the-art labs for automotive service, commercial refrigeration, manufacturing technology, nursing, dental assisting and building trades.

Scattered throughout the halls is one of Bemidji’s finest collections of original art, much of it directly connected to the region’s natural beauty and rich American Indian traditions. In warm weather, you can enjoy sitting outside on the tobacco-free grounds, set in a quiet south Bemidji neighborhood.

Another benefit of NTC is the ease and simplicity of our campus. Parking is widely available, very close to the building and inexpensive. The campus is set up so that classrooms are easy to find, instructors and staff are nearby and you can enjoy getting to know your fellow classmates in a more intimate setting than a much larger institution.
