Train-the-Trainer

Transformations Starts with Education

Traditionally, Train-the-Trainer events are hands-on professional development opportunities for community/technical college and high school instructors.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and the "Safer at Home" initiative still effect, NC3 is working hard to flip the classroom and Keep CTE Moving. We are excited to offer virtual training for our Train-the-Trainer events until we can get back into the classroom.

Please take a look at the upcoming virtual Train-the-Trainer opportunities below.

    All the NC3 curriculum and all the equipment is being introduced to us (at Train-the-Trainer) so we can take it back and start teaching the students with the new equipment and the new curriculum.
    Kevin Valentino

  • The unique thing about NC3 is that all students get our certifications at no charge! Every student, regardless of their economic background, has the ability to get an NC3 certification - endorsed by industry and carry that out into the marketplace.
    Roger Tadajewski
    Executive Director, NC3
  • Every faculty member that I have sent to the NC3 Train-the-Trainer has come back to campus as a better teacher.

    Andrew Ortman | 3D Printer Key Account Manager
    Dremel Education | Robert Bosch Tool Corporation
  • It's valuable for me to train other teachers and to be taught myself for continuous improvement as an educator. You need to learn and adapt to what is happening today and not what happened yesterday.
