Downtown North Bay is home to a new training centre for Indigenous students looking to up their skills in business, health care, human services, and technology.

The Native Education & Training College of Business, Healthcare, Human Service & Technology (NETC) opened a new campus in the city on Nov. 30.

In operation for 28 years, NETC is a registered private college that offers career-focused training. A number of options are available for learning, including online studies, in-class instruction, and apprenticeship training.

“At NETC, our graduates have been very successful in meeting the needs of industry employers," said NETC's Waylon Stewart, who leads programs and services, in a release.

"This success is a product of NETC’s student-focused atmosphere, industry-experienced instructors, and comprehensive training programs which are directly transferable to the workplace.”

The school aims to help students balance work and family commitments, while they strive to improve their lives through education.

“We really put our students first, and want them to be successful in their endeavours,” Stewart said.

"NETC offers supportive career services and employment strategies that are available to help graduates with their job search as well as their transition into the workforce."
