NWTC Advisory Committees
Thank you to all of our stakeholders who attended the NWTC Advisory Committee meetings on our Alva and Fairview campuses! Each career major program has an industry specific advisory committee consisting of local employers and business owners, students, parents, and public school educators who offer input on curriculum, equipment, facilities, etc. The BIS staff also utilizes advisory committees to gather data and suggestions on area training needs and customer satisfaction. Data from these advisory committees provide immediate and actionable information that assists NWTC with an innovative planning process. Listening to key stakeholder groups and learning from their input allows NWTC to determine specific training and educational needs. We appreciate your time and energy to help NWTC be its best!
Industry certifications, credentials, and licensures are essential to the success of students in every workforce area. NWTC has established a goal that all career major students will earn at least one industry certification that has been aligned to the student’s career major. Certifications include, but are not limited to: ASE, Department of Labor Welding, Health certifications and licensures, ProStart.
The ACT WorkKeys Assessment is administered to all full time students attending NWTC. Results from WorkKeys scores are utilized to assess student performance, strengths, and validate student skills relating to industry standards. NWTC utilizes the skill standards for Reading for Information, Locating Information and Applied Mathematics to measure and provide a baseline of data reflecting career readiness in core skills deemed critical for job success.
