SANDPOINT — With a focus on career-technical programs, the North Idaho College Roadshow is making a stop in Sandpoint on Friday.
More than 50 programs have been represented at the event, showcasing industry training that lasts anywhere from six months to two years in a variety of work environments. Some of those programs include diesel mechanics, aerospace technology, carpentry and construction, computer-aided design and more. Many of the same programs will be featured this year and, as always, military recruiters will be on hand to talk about careers in the service as well. Industries and businesses outside of NIC and the military will also be attending this years event, including Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy and North Idaho Massage Academy.
More and more emphasis is being placed on career-technical education, which provides students with hands-on skills to better prepare them for future careers. As students learn more about these CTE programs, the more aware they are of the options out there.
While the local roadshow is held at Sandpoint High School, everyone is welcome to attend this year’s event in the SHS gymnasium from 8:30-11 a.m., and 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
