With 2019 in the rearview mirror, now is an opportunity to create a new you at Western Nevada College in 2020.
To help students move their careers forward and become more prosperous in the future, the college is offering a new academic program certificates and certifications after they were approved by the Nevada System of Higher Education.
“Western Nevada College looks to continually build new degree and certificate pathways to support students as the look to transfer and/or enter the workforce,” said Dr. Kyle Dalpe, WNC’s Vice President of Instruction and Institutional Effectiveness.
WNC has added three new skills certifications and four new certificates of achievement.
New skills certifications are being offered in Automotive Collision Repair and among the new certificates of achievement are Cybersecurity Technician and Emergency Medical Services/Paramedicine.
The Automotive Collision Repair Skills Certification includes four courses in Collision Repair and Refinishing, preparing students for Automotive Service Excellence certification. All four auto body courses are offered this spring in the evening.
For the Cyber Security Technician Certificate of Achievement, two semesters are required, with multiple sections of Computer Information Technology courses available this spring on campus and online.
EMS 108 and EMS 115 are available this spring for individuals interested in EMS or Paramedicine Certificate of Achievements. Core requirements for English, math and psychology are also on the schedule for spring.
All students will want to work closely with an adviser for these programs in order to ensure they stay on track with the certification requirements.
