A Message from the Vice President of Operations

IntelliTec College is a group of growing, diverse campuses with staff and faculty that value the academic experience and take a personal interest in each student’s progress. IntelliTec College established its first campus in Colorado Springs in 1965 as Technical Trades Institute, Inc., and has continued its academic excellence for over 50 years. IntelliTec continues to offer programs that directly mirror community needs.

Our primary focus is to provide students with personalized attention that includes hands-on training and experience, opportunities to complete industry-specific certification testing, and assistance in finding full-time careers for their chosen profession. Campus staff and faculty work directly with students on personal, financial, and career goals to ensure their success. This formula has allowed IntelliTec to help thousands of students realize rewarding careers.

To enhance the IntelliTec student’s experience, IntelliTec College places a strong emphasis on community involvement. Our mission is to “Build a better community through quality and excellence in career training.” Each year, the campuses participate in several local events. Through these efforts, IntelliTec College raises awareness for local causes and provides opportunities for students to make an impact in their career field and community.

I encourage you to talk with our admissions team and begin a new career today… we can’t wait to have you become a part of our IntelliTec College Community!

Working For Your Success,

Wayne Zellner, II Vice President of Operations , IntelliTec College 


Our Mission

IntelliTec’s mission is to, “Build a better community through quality and excellence in career training.”

Become Part of Our Story…

In 1965, students enrolled at our first campus in Colorado Springs. The need for hands-on training with a focus on career-specific skills developed. Today, the Colorado Springs campus provides fast-track career training in several different disciplines to hundreds of students each year.

In 1984, an extension campus was established in Grand Junction, Colorado to offer Western Slope residents the opportunity to learn skills in demand for the growing needs of the area.

In 2000, under new ownership, we changed our name from Technical Trades Institute to IntelliTec College.

In 2005, we opened a branch campus of Grand Junction in Pueblo.

In 2015, IntelliTec College crossed the southern Colorado border and branched the Grand Junction campus into Albuquerque, New Mexico.

For more than 50 years, we have been trusted by students and employers to provide quality and excellence in hands-on training. We can’t wait for you to be part of our story.
