After high school, a lot of graduates go one of two ways: the university/college route or vocational school. While many of them offer similar courses and boast intricate curriculums, there’s a good chance a lot of traditional college or university-level programs will fall stagnant over the years. As the technology that gives life to and supports the trade jobs we hold so dear, so should the education that prepares every vocational student for a long, prosperous career. As a trade school that’s been run by the same family for three generations, keeping with the times has always been part of the curriculum at Pennco Tech – here’s how we do it.
Since our founding, tens of thousands of students have graduated with a trade school degree that put them on track for a successful career path. All eight of our vocational programs offer lab practicals, classroom instruction, and a host of highly skilled instructors with the most up-to-date course materials reflecting the current state of each industry. Our programs include:
In an interview with Deborah White, Pennco Tech’s executive director of marketing, she spoke about Pennco Tech’s dedication to continued excellence. “We continually stay on the pulse of these curricula through our dedicated Program Advisory Committee (PAC), a group of respected employer representatives from all fields who meet twice a year to ensure that our programs remain relevant and provide the training that meets our students’ and employers’ current needs,” says White.
Her sentiments are on full display in Pennco Tech’s Mazda Automotive Program. It’s a joint program between our Bristol, PA campus and Mazda North American Operations (MNAO), and it opens brand new doors to an endless array of potential career paths with specialized knowledge and skills.
Pennco Tech works diligently year in and year out to secure mutually beneficial relationships with surrounding companies and this often includes paid internships and other opportunities for full-time employment after graduation. Here are a few of the businesses we work with, which reflect the vocational courses we offer:
“Based on the recognized best-in-class training students receive on our campuses, Pennco Tech is aligned with a growing list of major employers who actively recruit our students,” White adds.
If you’re considering trade school, you want to give yourself the greatest possible advantage. That means finding a program that can promise up-to-date courses and highly knowledgeable instructors to answer your every question.
