According to the college NPRC offers affordable associate degrees, a general education certificate, and workforce training to the region and features locations within 15 miles of most residents served in a ten-county area. Associate degrees include business administration, criminal justice, early childhood education, liberal studies, and social sciences. Workforce Development courses include training in automotive, early childhood education, construction, industrial maintenance, manufacturing, healthcare, operational excellence, supervision and leadership, and transportation. Businesses can also contact NPRC about customizing their training to fit their organizational needs. Many of these courses and programs are also eligible for financial assistance through the local CareerLink®.
“College can be intimidating for many reasons,” shares Director of Student Services, Dannielle Fickenworth. “At NPRC, we work incredibly hard to ensure that every student, whether they be a high school student looking at colleges, full-time workers, single parents, or even first-generation college students have the resources and support they need to be successful and do not feel that intimidation. She continues, “This Open House is a great opportunity for someone ready to make a positive change in their life and hear first-hand how NPRC has been helpful in the life of a current student.”
