NPCC to host applied tech open houses for non-traditional students

North Platte Community College is hosting two open houses for prospective non-traditional applied technical trades students.

Those interested in pursuing careers in building and transportation trades will have an opportunity to learn more about the fields and the training it takes to be successful in them next week.

North Platte Community College will host open houses from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday on its north campus, 1101 Halligan Drive in North Platte. The events are free and open to the public.

Prospective non-traditional students can meet with instructors and tour NPCC’s Automotive Technology; Auto Body; Building Construction, Diesel, Electrical; Welding and Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration departments.

Representatives from advising will be available to answer questions about application processes and courses. Financial aid representatives will also be on hand to share information about the GI Bill and other forms of financial aid, and Career Services representatives will assist with questions regarding Accuplacer testing.
