  • Jeremy Smith
    Being an NC3 master instructor gives me a personal pride to step out and work with other instructors throughout the Nation.
    Jeremy Smith
    Diesel Technology Instructor, Wallace State Community College
  • Kevin Valentino
    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
    Retired - Auto Tech Instructor, Sylmar High School
  • 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.
    James King
    Retired - Executive Vice Chancellor, Tennessee Board of Regents
  • Career and technical education changes lives quicker than any other form of education.
    James King
    Retired - Executive Vice Chancellor, Tennessee Board of Regents
  • Train-the-Trainer is a great opportunity for faculty. They are receiving up-to-date training on the latest and the greatest certifications that NC3 offers and then they can bring it back and share that information with their students and it truly enhances the way they teach.
    Dr. Sheree Utash | President
    WSU Tech
  • NC3 provides the basis of certifications, curriculum, and training. Employers are going to look at these student certifications and are going to say, "this is someone that is versed in skills that I need and actually bringing a product to market."
    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.
  • NC3 provides a key strategy for community and technical colleges in aligning training needs with industry requirements. An industry certification adds a credential link from a degree to a career.
    Bryan D. Albrecht | President
    Gateway Technical College | Kenosha, WI
