From the time the New Castle School of Trades opened in downtown New Castle in 1945 to present day, thousands of graduates have entered their chosen field. The school has evolved from educating competent trades-people to training today’s highly skilled technicians.
Experienced instructors simulate an environment that lends itself to the development of job skills. Training programs at New Castle School of Trades are practical and “hands on”. New Castle School of Trades offers associates degrees in Automotive Technology, Building Technology, Electrical Technology, Machinist Technology, Refrigeration & A/C Technology and Diesel, Heavy Equipment Repair & Generator Technology.
Diploma programs include Combination Welding, Commercial Truck Driving, Commercial & Industrial Maintenance and Heavy Equipment Operations w/CDL. New Castle School of Trades graduates are in demand. Typically there are more job orders than graduates, and understandably so, there is a shortage of qualified people entering the skilled trade professions.
At NCST our mission statement is “To serve with excellence the needs of our community and the needs of our graduates by matching skills.” We can do none of this without a staff that is second to none, local employers that hire our graduates, and most importantly our customers…the students and graduates of the New Castle School of Trades.
Financial Aid is available to those who qualify. New Castle School of Trades provides an active job placement assistance office. This free service is available to all graduates of the school. NCST is approved for the training of eligible veterans. For more information, please visit http://www.ncstrades.edu/
