Dover's Career Technical Center gives students head start on careers
The CTC serves the tri-city area, so high school students from around Dover, Rochester and Somersworth can start taking quarter-long introduction classes freshman and sophomore years, O’Keefe said.
This way, O’Keefe said students can focus on subjects which interest them and expand their knowledge base.
Computer Technology Instructor Irving Harris, who is believer in the basics, said he teaches students to repair older equipment, as many businesses may not possess the “latest and greatest” technology.
Senior Ryan Hackett, 17, of Dover, said he’s also applied to help out in the information technology department at Dover High.
Because the CTC offers the only cosmetology class in the Seacoast, instructor Judith Ring said she’s glad they were able to expand to two, first-year classes to enable more students to get a foothold in the industry.
“It costs $300 instead of $20,000,” Ring said, adding as a result, they can begin a career right out of high school, have confidence while attending college or have tangible skills to use to operate a business.
“They (girls) have a different outlook than boys,” Duprat said, adding this allows them to focus in male-dominated fields, but also fills a need since many engineering firms are looking to hire women.
Electrical teacher Nathan Poland said students who complete two years of study earn their Occupational Safety Health Administration 10 construction cards, which is a requirement to work in the state.
