Truckee Meadows Community College High School, Reno, Nevada, plans to offer new technical certificates to qualified Washoe County School District students, who wish to gain technical proficiency and career readiness while still pursuing their High School diploma.
The certificates include programs in advanced manufacturing; architecture; automotive; construction management; diesel technology; Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine technician; energy technologies; Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC/R); logistics technician; production technician; Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV); and welding.
“This is a great opportunity for students who haven’t elected to go to one of the signature academies and it will let them shine in an area they’re talented in while filling an expanding need in the region for
skilled technical staff” -Melissa Olsen, TMCC High School principal.
The Technical Pathways program will begin with capacity for 50 eleventh grade students in fall 2016. Washoe County School District students will apply to Technical Pathways through the TMCC High School.
