Up Ahead: Streamlining

1. Meeting with Wilmington U representatives to discuss the possibility of streamlining our CTE instructors into the university and their courses. This partnership would allow our instructors to be automatically enrolled upon being hired into NCCVT and would allow them to take courses at their earliest convenience. Although our CTE instructors require varying credits based on their credentials, there are a couple classes everyone needs to complete.
