Do you want something different?

Think about a non-traditional career. Increasingly, students are choosing to go into fields that they have never considered before. Women can repair cars, become electricians, or become a welder and earn a high-dollar salary. Men in nursing (associate degree and practical), physical therapy assisting, medical assisting, and child development find that their choice of a non-traditional program gives them a satisfying career with a good paycheck.

Think Non-Traditional!

A non-traditional career path can give you better wages, better benefits, and broader job opportunities.
