Overview

Overview

Hamilton Technical College says

Hamilton Tech has been proud to provide the Quad City area quality technical training and medical assisting instruction for over 40 years. From our humble beginning in 1969 as the Academy of Radio and Television (ART) in Bettendorf, IA to our becoming Hamilton Technical College on 53rd and Tremont in Davenport, IA, we have grown with the community and we continue to train Electronics and Medical students to meet the needs of employers.

Our founder, Charles Hamilton, Jr., began the college by preparing students to take the Federal Communications Commission examination for broadcasting. While teaching students around his kitchen table he envisioned going beyond test preparation to training students to be broadcasters. Soon his vision grew with the needs of the employers in the community and an Electronics program developed in 1978. In 1980, as the program grew, the name was changed to Hamilton Technical College. HTC in the 1990's responded to a need in our medical community by creating a Medical Assisting Technology Program and in 2006 the Medical Billing and Coding program was started. In an effort to define our two distinct program areas, Hamilton Tech created the School of Technology (including Electronics Engineering Technology) and the School of Allied Health (including Medical Assisting Technology and Medical Billing and Coding).

As we celebrate our accomplishments for the last 38 years, we are keeping our eyes on the future educational and employment needs of our community.
