North Butler to partner with NC3 and Snap-on Tools

Certification Centers are education institutions that offer Snap-on certifications to students, and in some cases, to the incumbent workforce as well.  By offering third party, stackable and transferable credentials, certification centers help their students become more marketable.  
Compete in the marketplace, collaborate in classroom. 

Certification Centers are eligible for membership with the National Coalition of Certification Centers, also known as NC3.  This organization assists schools in their effort to collaborate with industry.  Partner schools who take advantage of NC3 join a national network of schools providing the highest level of training.  Additionally, NC3 works with industry and organizations with a goal of improving workforce development.
During the 2017-18 school year North Butler is proud to announce that we have partnered with Snap-on and NC3 to bring new programs to our students. As soon as we are prepared we will be offering programs in Precision Measuring Instruments, Mechanical and Electronic Torque Instruments, and at least on other area that is yet to be determined. 
Not only will the students involved be able to earn a certificate, but will also be able to print a document that shows the proficiencies that they are able to demonstrate throughout the program. 
There will be more information available as we move forward with this partnership!

It's Great To Be A Bearcat!
