Why take courses in Cooperative Education?
Cooperative Education is a planned learning experience, for which credits are earned, that integrates classroom theory and learning experiences at the workplace. This experience enables students to apply and refine the knowledge and skills acquired in a related course.
Students are generally out in the workplace for a half day (morning or afternoon) for a semester. The tasks preformed at the work site relate to a course that is either being taken presently or in a previous semester.
Critical Areas of Learning
Students will participate in a pre-placement orientation where they will discuss resume writing, interview skills, health and safety before they are placed on a work site.
