- Basic Electricity Technician
- Criminal Justice Technician
- Early Childhood Program Administration
- Microsoft Excel Application Specialist

OFTC also offers quick, non-credit programs that can assist with a multitude of skills training.
“In an effort to support our communities, business and industry, and individuals in this time of need,” continued Harden,”we’re also offering FREE access to several self-paced online, basic soft-skills courses that encompass a variety of topics useful in any work environment, such as customer service, mLearning, and teleworking, time management, and much more.”
