You must have heard about employers having the tough time finding qualified applicants; it’s been all over the news. They are looking for people with specific training and certificates.
It would be a waste of time to use this blog post to explore how this situation evolved. What really matters is how you might fit into the solution.
The first thing you want to know is how much money it’s going to take to become trained and certified, right? It depends, but our tuition is a third less than most other colleges and four-year universities, so keep that in mind as you consider your options.
The next thing you’re probably thinking about is time. Well, we’ve designed our programs to be as flexible as possible. Many of our courses have an online element to them, and lots of labs are scheduled to fit the busy lives our students have. Some allow you to go at your own pace! It would be wise to start believing this could work for you. We get it — jobs, families, appointments, they all keep you busy. But our flexible lab schedules and expert instructors are here to make it easier every step of the way.
The next obstacle you likely have in mind is how long it’s going to take before you are one of those coveted, qualified people. We’ve developed our electrical, HVAC and mechatronics programs to prepare you with quality and speed. So, if you are thinking all the job openings will be filled before you’re ready, think again.
You could start by earning a certificate and continue toward an associate degree. You could get ready to take the test allowing you to be called journeyman or master. If you’re tired of your seasonal job, already are a professional and want an apprenticeship or a former military service member, we’d like to explore options with you.
It’s up to you, but rest assured the certificate alone will qualify you for jobs you can’t get without it. Some employers will pay for your training, so if you’re already working and want a promotion, ask your employer.
The list of jobs you could get with the credentials we can help you earn is long. Here are some fields you could choose from in the near future:
Facilities and industrial techs (aka Mechatronics)
Our trades programs have been significantly enhanced during the past several years. Regulations and our M-TEC in Gaylord has the latest tech, industry-standard tools and instructors with relevant experience who are ready to prepare you for a steady job that pays great — and a long career if that’s what you want.
