LEBANON COUNTY CAREER & TECHNOLOGY CENTER SLATES FALL OPEN HOUSE
(October 2018. . . Lebanon PA) “A technical education is much different than it was 25 years ago. The myth is you must go to college. With the world’s ever-changing technology, students must be able to read at a higher level, do higher levels of math and have greater reasoning skills to be successful. As a result, there is now a greater value in pursuing Career and Tech education.” Glenn Meck, Administrative Director, Lebanon County Career & Technology Center (LCCTC).
Middle School students, High school students or parents of students who are considering career training instead of college, or adults who want to change a career are the target audience for the Lebanon County Career and Technology Center Fall Open House on Thursday, November 8, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
According to LCCTC Administrative Director Glenn Meck, the Open House will feature demonstrations and introductions to the faculty and administration.
“The LCCTC is a state-of-the-art technical training facility that houses industry programs, classrooms and laboratories with full day, half day, and evening classes,” said Meck. “Students learn by doing from knowledgeable instructors who remain up-to-date on industry advancements. The Open House is our way of introducing the facility and faculty to high school students and adults looking for an affordable pathway towards high-demand, high-skill and high-wage careers.”
Each program offers hands-on experience to prepare students of all ages for the real world. The combination of traditional academics, soft skills development, and technical skills training empowers students to succeed in their chosen career pathway. The LCCTC offers programs in Architecture and Construction; Arts, Audio Visual Technology and Communications; Cosmetology; Health Science; Human Services; Hospitality and Tourism; Information Technology; Manufacturing; Practical Nursing; and Transportation, Distribution and Logistics
“LCCTC programs are offered at no individual cost to secondary students and all programs are accredited for adult education by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This enables adult students to apply for federal loans and grants for all of our daytime programs,” added Meck. “In addition, some earned credits can be used for certifications, college and accreditations.”
“Take charge of your future” is more than a slogan of the LCCTC, it is a promise to each student. For more information on the Open House, the LCCTC and its program offerings, call 717.273.8551 or visit the website at www.lcctc.edu.
