Hands-on Training

At Summit College we believe that students must learn beyond the theory taught inside a classroom. That’s why your classes will require you to spend time in the lab and deal with real-life situations.

In the Certified Nursing Assisting (CNA) program, for example, you will be required to complete hours of lab/clinical training. This prepares you to handle patients when you start your job.

For students of Trade and Technical programs, we have facilities where students can practice what they learn in the classroom and deal with challenges they will encounter in real life.

Modern Facilities

As a Summit College student you will also be able to enjoy the Learning Academy, Library and classrooms. The Learning Academy, Library and Computer Lab offer crucial support to the learning process. You will find there a quiet and comfortable space with computers, free printer services and the most current test practice questions.
