How does the CSE work?

Student groups rotate between Learning Stations for 10-minute presentations from Industry Champions – young skilled trade professionals with years of practical experience in each industry.

Learning Stations highlight different aspects & opportunities of a skilled trade career and insights on how to prepare for the first job. Students walk away with resources from each Learning Station to include descriptions of job duties, potential salary, required education, training & certifications.
