The school in Hollister announced Wednesday it has added Construction Technology, Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, and Computer Information Science to its offerings.

The technical programs will be located on 5.5 acres of property to the north of campus. Last month, the OTC Board of Trustees approved a letter of intent with the city of Hollister to enter into an agreement regarding the property, including structures.

Currently, students at OTC Table Rock can pursue transfer and nursing degrees.

OTC Chancellor Dr. Hal Higdon said Wednesday the new programs diversify degree options and fulfill a promise to citizens. He said when the Branson School District voted to join the OTC Taxing District in the spring of 2015, the college promised that we would bring career and technical training to the Table Rock campus. The OTC Table Rock Campus opened in the fall of 2013.
