About NTI

Northeast Technical Institute (NTI) is a nationally accredited trade and technical school offering technical training to adults in Maine. We pride ourselves on offering individual attention, hands-on training and extensive career support services in the areas of Trade, Tech, and Health. Each year we help five to seven hundred students and their families enjoy a better way of life while bolstering the local workforce and promoting economic growth.

We are defined by our mission to develop and deliver excellent career and continuing education, and by the relationships we build with local employers. Compared to colleges, universities, and large conglomerate schools, we are a small and dynamic, locally owned school with ties deeply seeded in Maine. This allows us to work tirelessly on the student’s behalf while being able to respond quickly to industry trends.

Our strategic plan identifies and provides institutional awareness of four key areas of focus that provide a clear plan with which NTI will strive to continue meeting the needs of the students, businesses and communities we serve. The pages that follow contain our mission, our vision, our core values and the four are as on which we’ll work over the next three years to sustain excellence in career education.
