Joint Technical Programs—Technical Education and Training Partnership Programs

To better serve the technical education needs of the region, West Virginia Northern Community College and the six county school systems of the Northern Panhandle have joined together to form the Northern Panhandle Technical Education and Training Partnership. Through this partnership, a number of joint Associate in Applied Science programs are offered. These programs combine technical courses available through the school systems with support courses and advanced courses at the College.

A list of the programs and the counties participating in each program is detailed on the following page. New programs are being added to the agreement so interested persons should check with the College or the local high school for the most current list. Interested high school students should check with their high school counselors regarding enrollment information. Many of the programs permit post secondary students to enroll so adult students should check with College counselors about program availability and admissions procedures. The subsequent table outlines course requirements for each program.
