Upon graduating I entered the work force with the academic and practical skills required to get my career rolling. The professional staff, many of whom had spent the majority of their careers in industry, were as much mentors as they were instructors. I found the off-topic and out of curriculum advice every bit as important as the class room and lab sessions. As one instructor put it ‘some of the best education you can get at NBCC is the stuff you don’t pay for’ and early on in my career both educations paid off. As my career continues to progress, I have had the pleasure of working with and hiring other NBCC graduates, all of whom possess a great deal of confidence and competence in their roles.
