Pathfinder Tech

Cooperative Education Program

The Cooperative Education Program at Pathfinder is an optional experience for seniors and juniors (second half of junior year) who have a minimum 1,000 hours in their technical area. Through a cooperative arrangement between the school and employer, the student has the opportunity to perform work-based learning as a paid employee rather than coming to school on their tech week. To be eligible, students must have the recommendation of their technical program teachers, and meet the required grade, attendance, and discipline standards. Students must also have their OSHA 10-hour card; some technical areas may require additional certifications prior to entering the program.

Pathfinder Tech offers a wide range of vocational technical programs that give students a competitive advantage both in college and the workforce. These sixteen programs are designed to help students create and follow pathways to a career of their choice.  Pursue your passion and enjoy your education!
