NC3 has set up a model where companies in the aviation, transportation, energy and horticulture sectors can partner with community college faculty members to create certification courses specific to jobs in their industries. These courses cover science behind Torque, high precision wheel servicing, advanced automotive diagnostic tools, HVAC installation and repair and more. Once the courses are locked down, NC3 trains community college instructors from across the country to administer these courses to their students. The instructors are then able to certify their students free of charge in these “stackable” certificates. Students can be certified in multiple tasks and then take those certificates potential employers as proof that they are capable of doing the job that they are applying for.
The NC3 Train-the-Trainer event is at the heart of this model. The teachers become the students. They learn, they explore and they study, knowing they’ll return to their classrooms to help their students onto a path to better employment. Watch the video above to see the power behind NC3’s efficient and thoughtful model.
