When you compare what most of us were told to what is currently needed you may be surprised. The current educational needs as well as various successful career paths have changed. Please watch the video to the left that outlines the realities of today's current need so that you may have a better understanding of what our students need to succeed.

Clearances are required for a company to participate in our co-op program

Pennsylvania requires that companies entering into co-op or internship agreements must have one adult with clearances in the workplace who will be designated as the supervisor of the student. The designated supervisor shall be the one responsible for the student's welfare while at work. This supervisor must be in the "immediate vicinity" ( an area in which he/she is physically present with the student and can see, hear, direct and assess the activities of the student) at regular intervals with the student. Click Clearances for Employers to get the required clearances.
