Northwest Georgia high school students will have an opportunity to speak with representatives of Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s (GNTC) industrial programs about the benefits of learning a skilled trade during Industrial Career Day on Friday, Oct. 28, at the Floyd County Campus in Rome.

Industrial program directors will be on-hand to discuss their programs and to provide tours of their labs. There will be demonstrations, simulators and hands-on learning activities for the industrial programs offered by GNTC.

The activities will take place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Industrial Alley on GNTC’s Floyd County Campus. The alley is located adjacent to Buildings B, C, D and F which contain a majority of the college’s industrial programs. This will provide a centralized location with access to most of the industrial labs on the Rome campus.
