Learn more about a rewarding career path in the professional and skilled trades at this Kalamazoo Valley Community College event.

Artisans and craftsmen were doing essential work before those words were co-opted by beer commercials. Most hard-working journeymen do not want to talk about their personal journey, and apprentices are not learning magic, they are learning a skilled trade that they can turn in to a viable career and a rewarding occupation.

Future carpenters, plumbers, electricians, mechanics, millwrights, pipefitters, boilermakers, hvac technicians and others who are mechanically minded can find out about a career in the skilled trades expo at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. It happens at the KVCC Advanced Technology Center on West O Ave. on the Texas Township campus.
