Career Center

January 2018 Blog

 

December was another eventful month at the Career Center. Arroyo High School Sophomores had an opportunity to experience Career Technical Educational Awareness Day at the Eden Regional Occupational Program Center. There were so many great career courses and programs to explore.

 

These training programs prepare students for the many high demand skilled labor jobs at no cost and 

the teaching staff are all industry experts and professionals.

 

Here are just some of the programs students were able to connect with.

 

Welding is a very high demand skill in the Manufacturing/ Construction industry. Industries are projecting 70% of their workforce will be retired in the next few years.  Companies such as BART, EBMUD, and PG&E are just some of the utility companies hiring for entry level welders and machinists. 

 


 

Fire Science was very interactive. We had the opportunity to watch a re-enactment of a medical emergency incident with the next generation Fire-Fighters and Paramedics: 



The high performance car in the background is the work of these young men and women who are training for a career in Automotive Technology. If you could just hear the sound of the engine, it would amaze you how powerful it is. These are very dedicated students and learn with a hands on approach. 

 

 

Information, Communication Technology is a new course offered at Eden ROP as it covers computer hardware builds, securing & managing computer networks, and cybersecurity training & management.
