Career and Continuing Education


Career and Continuing Education Courses are designed for adults who want to learn a trade or supplement the skills and technical knowledge they use in their present jobs. Serious hobbyists are welcome too.

Students in the Career and Continuing Education Program learn by doing. Classes are held in the Passaic County Technical Institute’s fully equipped shops and classrooms using modern tools, equipment and techniques. Shop work is supplemented by the instruction in theory and principles of the trade.

Instructors are teachers in the Passaic County Technical Institute Day Program and other highly skilled, experienced tradespeople. No course credits are given in the Career and Continuing Education Program; however, each student with good attendance is given a certificate which indicates the number of hours attended.
