Colonial Institute

This is the starting point.

Colonial Chemical is beginning a new learning program, designed specifically for potential applicants like yourself. We are partnering with Chattanooga State Community College in delivering essential coursework necessary for a Chemical Operator Technical Certificate (COTC) in only three semesters. There are many funding sources available to potentially cover all enrollment costs.

All classwork is performed at the Chatt State – Kimball, TN campus. Courses include:

Mathematics for Engineering Technology
Industrial Chemistry
Mechanical Components and Electrical Drives
Process Operations
Process Equipment

Those who are enrolled in the coursework and working toward completion of the COTC requirements may be eligible for supervised paid apprenticeships at the Colonial Chemical operations. Completion of the COTC coursework guarantees every applicant a thorough interview process and opportunity to join the Colonial Chemical team.

COTC coursework may be applied to being awarded an A.A.S. in Chemical Engineering Technology. Go to for an online admissions application and complete requirements for this major.
