Spending one afternoon at Western Nevada College could provide the inspiration to change and shape your future. WNC will showcase its Career and Technical Education programs with an open house from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Reynolds Center for Technology at the Carson City Campus.
With more than 52,000 new jobs expected in Northern Nevada in the next several years, now is the time for area residents to consider learning job skills through Career and Technical Education.
Visitors will discover exciting career options, view equipment demonstrations, hear from WNC graduates and tour the college’s CTE facilities. Each program is scheduled to provide a 15-minute presentation with time for questions.
Led by Dr. Georgia White, WNC’s CTE department includes automotive, business, computer information, construction management, criminal justice, education, deaf studies, graphic communications, machine tool, manufacturing and welding.
Many programs offer accelerated training designed to prepare students to pass industry certifications that employers are now demanding from their workers.
The Reynolds Center for Technology is located at 2201 W. College Parkway in Carson City.
