About Clover Park Community College

Clover Park Technical College (CPTC) is a community college in Lakewood, Washington.The college was created by the Clover Park School District in 1942 as a vocational school to train 3,500 civilians as auto mechanics for the nearby McChord Field and Fort Lewis Army Post, and shipfitters, welders and blueprint readers for Tacoma shipyards. After the war training was expanded to include aircraft mechanics, and Civil Aeronautics Administration certification. In 1954 the vocational school moved to its current location, and since has added over 50 training programs in a wide range of specialties. Clover Park Technical College offers courses online and on campus for students getting ready for their first career, their next step within their career or new careers. Clover Park Technical College is here to help students redefine education to meet their needs. The College's rich history of professional and technical education dates to the 1940s, when the Clover Park School District established a War Production program training civilians as auto mechanics, aircraft-service mechanics, ship-fitters, welders and blueprint readers.
