• Cooperative Education

    Co-Op is a method of training, where students combine classroom instruction with job training in a career area that they have chosen to take at NWCTC. It is a unique plan of education, designed to integrate classroom study with planned, supervised, practical work experience. Learning by doing helps students relate to actual and real world employment. These are specific qualifications that must be met before a student will be released for a Co-Op work experience.
