At the Career College of Northern Nevada (CCNN), students can find a wide variety of training programs available to help them compete for a job and work toward establishing a successful career. Originally founded in 1984 as the Apollo Business and Technical School, CCNN has since continued to evolve to offer career training programs focused upon the needs of prospective employers. A strong emphasis is placed on hands-on training and job-relevant skills for this very reason. CCNN is located in Sparks, Nev., but is accessible to students living in nearby areas, such as Reno, right next door, as well as Fernley, Carson City and even Fallon. Students as far away as Lake Tahoe, about 40 minutes to the west, might also be interested in the school's programs.
CCNN's faculty members are skilled in the areas in which they teach and are dedicated to putting in the time and effort to see each of their students succeed. They teach in a modern and up-to-date facility that has been specifically designed to meet students' educational needs. These include classroom and laboratory areas, as well as a library, student lounge and administrative offices.
Although CCNN does not provide campus-based housing, it does offer a variety of other offerings to its students, including a student-run newspaper. As well, students can take advantage of a variety of services available at CCNN, including its Career Placement Services that can assist students in looking for their first job as well as future positions. Nearby, students have access to a variety of fast-food restaurants and retail stores as well as the Sparks Marina, which is home to a lovely walking path, beach volleyball courts and fishing.
