New campus opens doors to the future
The new Fountainhead College of Technology campus opened its doors for business last week at its new location in west Knoxville near Interstate 40/75 and Pellissippi Parkway. Over 200 students are currently enrolled in the college's eight technology-focused programs.
The new campus is spacious and modern with larger classrooms and labs, a larger library resource center and student lounge.
The school has a dedicated Testing Center, where students and non-students can test for leading technology certifications, many of which are embedded into the curriculums. Fountainhead College is a CompTIA Authorized Academy Partner, as well as an authorized Pearson Vue and Prometric Test Center.
"This is a watershed moment in the history of Fountainhead College," said Richard Rackley, the school CEO. "We are bringing our students closer to where the tech-focused jobs are, and we are now able to bring our considerable expertise in IT, cybersecurity and health information directly into Knoxville's technology community. Moving our campus west couldn't come at a better time, given the growth and need for a skilled and tech savvy workforce."
