Without labor, nothing prospers.



Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.

And this work has become highly technical and computerized. There are thousands of jobs waiting for skilled hands and minds.

North Central heard the need for training in the skilled trades from businesses throughout Northern Michigan. We created the Fab Lab, which is a mobile lab providing computer numerical controls (CNC) training to employers and students. Through the support of a federal grant to the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, we built a stationary lab in Petoskey. And now through a partnership with the Industrial Arts Institute in Onaway, we can offer a degree in welding.
