Cooperative Education

Co-Operative Education This program combines classroom instruction with workplace experience; the Diversified Occupations program provides a cooperative arrangement between the school and employers where the student receives general education instruction in the school and on-the-job training through at least 15 hours a week of employment in business/industry.  CAPSTONE:  Think of this as the finishing touch to the CCCTC program the student is already involved in. This experience gives the student the chance to go to work instead of attending CCCTC class. The students “cap off” their in-school training with related job experience at an approved training site.

The clearance listed below must be completed and returned to Clearfield County Career and Technology Center, Attention Jack Rumfola, 1620 River Road, Clearfield, PA. 16830. These clearances must be completed prior to any student beginning Co-Op. If you have any questions please contact Jack Rumfola at 814-768-4614 or Email Jack Rumfola.
