WCMA April Meeting

The WCMA April Meeting will be held on Thursday,April 13,2017. Please note date change to the second Thursday in April. We will be touring Penn Commercial Business & Technical School followed by dinner at the Union Grill.

Penn Commercial offers training in four disciplines including Technical, Medical,Business and Spa & Salon. In December 2016, Penn Commercial began construction of the new Technology Center which includes:

•Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CAD)

• Electrician

•Heating.Ventilation.Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC-Rl

•Welding Technology

We are in Phase 1 of three phases of construction of the new labs.

In addition to the construction of the new HVAC lab,Penn Commercial is proud to be the second school in the United States to be a Lennox partner school. All the residential equipment in the lab is provided by Lennox. The commercial equipment is provided by Carrier. The Residential and Commercial wiring lab and the PLC and motor control lab for Electricians have already been completed. In addition,we are in talks with Lincoln Electric to become a Lincoln partner school for welding.

All our technical programs will prepare students with in-depth knowledge about the latest technologies and equipment. Our instructors also ensure that students will have an engaging learning experience that will keep our students experiencing the latest technology.The technical and trade fields are constantly evolving,and that requires constantly updated content and practices. At Penn Commercial,our goal is to prepare students for employment in the technical and trade field through extensive exposure to current practices and a well-rounded learning experience.

Students in the Technical & Trade Programs benefit from a complete learning experience in which they are able to train using the kind of technology,tools and resources they are likely to find when they are employed in the field. Our faculty is formed by skilled teachers with years of experience,who are ready to share their knowledge and prepare students for real-life challenges.
