4 Why Take Co-op? To learn life skills – for interest To “test drive” a career – check it out To gain “hands-on” experience To observe and work with experts and professionals using top quality equipment To acquire contacts for future employment NO EXAM and NO TEXTBOOKS!! To gain experience in the “real world” To work at quality places that are not hiring

6 Workplace Component Students attend a workplace Monday to Friday Students attend co-op class every other Monday Number of hours per day at the workplace depends on the number of credits to be earned 2 credits = 3.5 hours per workday 3 credits = 5 hours per workday 4 credits = 7 hours per workday
