LIGHT DUTY DIESEL The Diesel Technology program at NCC is taking a new direction! The former two-year program that also incorporated a year of automotive training is now becoming TWO stand-alone program options! The new Diesel Technology program will continue to focus on trucks, trailers, construction and agricultural equipment from manufacturers such as Caterpillar, Peterbilt, John Deere, Case IH and more. With the new curriculum, both years of this two year program will deal directly with the workings of the larger diesel-ran equipment. Additionally, NCC is adding a new Automotive and Light Duty Diesel program beginning in Fall 2017. The two year program will incorporate automotive knowledge and smaller diesel engine performance into its curriculum. This program will prepare students for employment in automotive dealerships, performance shops, fleet facilities, and owning their own automotive business. BUSINESS DEGREE A new Associate of Applied Science in Business program started in January 2017. The new program is designed for students who are interested in a two year program that will prepare them to enter the workforce as a manager or supervisor trainee. Students acquire a background in basic business principles including accounting, budgeting, math and economics and practical supervisory skills. Areas of emphasis include marketing, management supervision, small business management, entrepreneurship, and leadership. The program is offered in three different ways: entirely online, entirely on-campus, or as a hybrid on-campus/online option. In addition to the AAS degree option, students may focus on stacking certificates to help them earn credentials to use in advancing current job skills or in seeking future employment. Certificates are available in Management Supervision, Small Business Management, and Entrepreneurship. campus updates
