South Seattle Community College’s award-winning Georgetown Campus is located on a 13-acre parcel of land in the heart of Seattle’s industrial zone, Washington’s largest manufacturing center. The area is home to more than 4,000 businesses and 70,000 employees, supporting the largest number of family-wage jobs in Seattle. The campus is located near major airport, seaport, and manufacturing operations, making it an ideal location for industrial and craft training and related services.
South supports a strategic objective to provide quality workforce training and apprenticeship opportunities that meet high demand occupational needs. The Georgetown Campus hosts the Apprenticeship and Education Center, the Puget Sound Industrial Excellence Center (PSIEC), the Washington Safety and Health Training Institute (WASHTI), and multiple community and educational programs.
The Georgetown Campus consists of five training and instructional facilities with more than 100,000 square feet dedicated for classrooms, labs, and offices. New buildings feature state of the art classrooms with increased technology and flexibility for instruction. Labs provide larger spaces for instruction and hands-on learning indoors. The new Gene J. Colin Education Hall is an excellent state-of-the-art space for classroom instruction, conferences and seminars, allowing for short-term and contracted training, and community and business collaboration through the Puget Sound Industrial Excellence Center.
