GNB Voc-Tech Institute


Our Adult Education Program offers more than 80 courses through a trimester format for those who wish to obtain new or additional skills or interests.
Courses include licensed trade areas (ex: electrical, medical, carpentry, and plumbing) as well as non-licensed areas (ex: machine shop, automotive, computer technology, photography, pharmacy tech, and welding). 
Language courses are also offered including Portuguese, Spanish, and American Sign Language.  Classes are also offered in practical arts (culinary, clothing, gardening, and areas of special interest).
In addition to the economic benefits for the participants, as well as our local economy, each year approximately 1,500 area residents leave the program with additional skills; greater competency; increased confidence; and new or renewed interests; as well as new social contacts.
