student attending job fair

The Central Oregon Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship was held on Friday November 18th at the Redmond Central Oregon Community Campus. The event brought over 400 high school students, community college students, and young adults from across the Central Oregon region to learn about career options in skilled trades, apprenticeships, and other STEM fields. In addition to classroom sessions and hands-on activities, such as welding, automotive technology, and vet tech, attendees networked with about 40 local employers to learn about exciting careers available in our area.

Friday’s event was made possible through partnership between regional trades and apprenticeship organizations, local industry, and regional education groups including, Better Together, Central Oregon STEM Hub, Regional CTE, and Central Oregon Community College.
