2016 HCC Non Traditional Student

Heartland Career Center students are well into another year of exploring opportunities to develop skills, which will allow them greater access to high demand jobs in today’s highly technical world. All of the students attending Heartland Career Center are actively involved in classrooms that allow them access to hands-on experiences that provide the chance for students to gain experience in a wide array of technical fields. This past summer has once again been a busy time of change for Heartland Career Center. The introduction of a preschool classroom inside our facility created a flurry of activities, which transitioned the electronics lab into an environment that now houses learning centers for pre-kindergarten learners. This transformation will provide a learning environment not only for preschool students, but also Heartland students who have previously worked with local preschools in the community. The students, both pre-k and high school students are excited to begin this new chapter at Heartland Career Center.

The other major change to the programs at Heartland Career Center is the relocation of the electronics classroom to a new classroom, which provides for a closer proximity to the other advanced manufacturing programs of precision machining and welding. This relocation provides a larger environment that allows for the introduction of motor control and program logic controller learning modules, along with a new six axis Fanuc robot. Each of these learning stations will provide students with industrial training that will directly relate to high demand industrial positions.

As we embark on another year, we are excited for the opportunities we can provide inside each of our classrooms. This is largely due to the support we have been honored to receive both from our communities, as well as our region. The training provided in each of our programs allows students to prepare for the job opportunities that are available in our region. This has been a concerted effort that has brought together key individuals in our region, which is creating great internship possibilities that can potentially lead to employment for Heartland Career Center students. We continue to be excited for the numerous opportunities that our students have the chance to pursue due to the support we have received and we look forward to this upcoming year.
