About IntelliTec:

IntelliTec Colleges, founded in 1965, started with a simple goal to provide skilled workers to the Colorado Springs community. We shortly realized that education was more than just passing along a skill. We noticed that providing a student with an education for a specific skill set would often completely change their lives, and that inspired us to help make that change for as many students as we could. We’ve now been accomplishing our goal for over 50 years across our four campuses, three residing in Colorado and one in Albuquerque, NM. Our mission is to build a better community through quality and excellence in career training, and that means preparing our students as best we can to be successful employees when they walk out the door. For our employees, the best days of the year are at each graduation ceremony when we get to see the look of accomplishment on the faces of our graduates as they walk across the stage, knowing they’re on to bigger and better things. Working at IntelliTec is about more than just paying the bills; it’s about making a difference.

We offer technical trades programs in topics ranging from automotive repair to assisting in a medical environment. Program offerings are based on the anticipated need of the communities we live and work in, and we consistently meet with local employers to ensure our students leave with the skills they need in order to be successful. To our own employees, we offer competitive wages, a comprehensive benefits package, and a company culture that provides our campuses with support, yet is small enough to ensure you know the company President by name. If you’re looking to make a difference in your community, then we’d love to have you!
