Students learn basic skills in a variety of hands-on activities. In fact, 75 percent of the coursework involves hands-on assignments that compliment the textbook applications. Students may also participate in a post-secondary partnership with Clark State Community College. This agreement helps students earn college credits that also apply toward graduation from high school. In the second year of the program, most students take part in  Early Job Placement with local companies.
