Open House to Explore Opportunities for a “Career in a Year”


Nash Community College, in partnership with Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools, will host a “Career in a Year” Open House Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM on the college campus. The event will highlight programs of study offered through the college’s Continuing Education department that can be completed within one year.

“This will be an opportunity for middle school and high school students, parents and community members to come to campus and explore careers that provide a great future and require only short-term training,” event coordinator Wil van der Meulen, NCC Career Pathways & Transition Coordinator said.

Career in a Year will take place at the Continuing Education & Public Services Building located on the south end of NCC’s campus. Attendees will learn about training for careers in Electric Line Construction Technology, Fire Service, Law Enforcement, Truck Driving, Welding, EMS and more. Additionally, the two newest facilities on campus will be open for tours – the Advanced Manufacturing and Cosmetology buildings.

“Many programs will share hands-on demonstrations. The event is focused on career-oriented programs, however, unarmed self-defense, motorcycle driver training, photography, HVAC repair, and other personal interest classes will also be featured,” van der Meulen said.
