Students visit schools to consider future options
Thinking of the future
Several students at the Center for Career Services got an inside look at possibilities for their futures with two career-related field trips.
On Oct. 30, students traveled to the Universal Technical Institute in Bloomfield, NJ.
There the 25 students learned how UTI provides training for entry-level careers in automotive, diesel, medium and heavy equipment, in addition to collision repair, motorsports, motorcycle and machine technicians. There is also training for welders and Computer Numerical Control machining.
Students received a tour of the campus, including the automotive and collision programs. They also met with admissions counselors and were part of demonstrations on hydraulics and automotive electronics.
A couple days later, 24 students visited the Rockland Community College Herbert Kurz Automotive Program.
The technology center is a National Coalition of Certification Center and, according to SWBOCES School Counselor Maynor Loria is “considered a model automotive facility.”
The college offers an AAS in Automotive Technology and more than 15 Snap-on Industrial certifications.
