About the TCAT //

The Director

Debbie Petree

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Jacksboro.  TCAT Jacksboro celebrates our 50th year of providing technical education and training in 2017.  Since we opened our doors, many students have entered the workforce utilizing the skills they gained at TCAT Jacksboro.  Our faculty and staff are dedicated to continuing that legacy of providing high quality, competency-based technical training to all individuals who choose to attend TCAT Jacksboro.

It is our philosophy that technical education should be a balanced program of studies and work experiences with a common objective of producing employable and competent workers.  The College believes that all eligible citizens should have the privilege and opportunity to set their occupational goals.  We are dedicated to assisting those citizens with their goal setting and providing them the training experiences necessary to achieve those goals.  Because of the wide and varied differences in education, abilities, and ambitions, we believe individualized training is the key to student success. 

Through high-quality training, our College is also dedicated to improving the earning power of local citizens and helping them to achieve a better way of life.  We are equally committed to serving business and industry by providing them with the skilled workers they require.

As a lifelong resident of Campbell County, I am honored to serve as Director of TCAT Jacksboro.  Our faculty and staff will be with you each step of the way as you prepare to enter a new career or possibly upgrade your skills to advance in your current career.  I think you will find that TCAT Jacksboro positively impacts your life.
