BEGIN TRADE SCHOOL TRAINING AT NCST
Admissions representatives at New Castle School of Trades make a point to meet prospective students face-to-face. NCST feels that this is the best way to assess an individual’s commitment to the trials ahead.
Applicants who possess a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) must pass an entrance evaluation. For all programs, the minimum evaluation score is 75. The Machinist Technology program requires the applicant to complete a math placement assessment in addition to the entrance evaluation.
Applicants for the Commercial Truck Driving program, Class B CDL Training, Heavy Equipment Operations with Commercial Truck Driving program, and Diesel and Heavy Equipment Repair Technology Training program must hold a current driver’s license, obtain CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) Learner’s Permit and possess an acceptable driving record from the Motor Vehicle Administration.
The school makes the final decision on an individual’s application based on the information submitted on the qualification form, test results, and our representative’s recommendation. We stress that a prospective student must have the willingness to work within our school policies and procedures. Applicants must also demonstrate, through a personal interview, the desire to complete the course and benefit from the training. New Castle School of Trades accepts all applicants without regard to race, creed, sex, color, age, or national origin.
New Castle School of Trades offers a great environment for learning with both hands-on application and text. The instructors and staff are knowledgeable in their respective trades and more than willing to work with your learning pace and deconfliction of your day-to-day schedule to meet your/their goals. Highly recommended to any individuals interested in the trade field.
New Castle instructors and staff reflect great credit upon themselves and are in keeping with the highest traditions of American trade school standards.
