Career College Of Northern Nevada


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.
