Points of Interest

Safely educating future nurses

After the COVID-19 pandemic shut down in-person classes in March, Everett Community College (EvCC) was the first community college in the state to earn approval to bring nursing students back to campus to complete training to serve the community. The college received authorization from the Washington State Nursing Commission after creating a safety plan that was emulated by other colleges. EvCC is also following strict safety protocols in on-campus labs for other high-demand programs, such as the EMT program, medical assisting, firefighter training, aviation and advanced manufacturing.

Retraining unemployed workers

EvCC’s Worker Retraining office works closely with the Washington State Employment Security Department to support workers who have lost their jobs. The need for student support increased following layoffs at Snohomish County aerospace companies and other businesses. Worker Retraining helps EvCC students get started on a new career path and identify the resources that can help.

College credit with hands-on skill building

North Snohomish County junior and senior high school students are able to earn college credit through Everett Community College while preparing for apprenticeships in construction, electrical and other trades through an innovative partnership between business, industry, labor, K-12 and government. The Regional Apprenticeship Pathways (RAP) Center’s dual credit program improves students’ access to training in the skilled trades and career-connected learning.
