    I have for the past eight years utilized the Automotive Program and I must say we are very pleased with everyone we have dealt with. The Co-op program has provided us with five students whom we have hired as full time employees after graduation.

    Everyone has always done an excellent job in recommending the right student to match our company needs. The program has done an excellent job in preparing the students for entry level Automotive Technician positions.

  • The Pecoy Companies

    Over the past 2 ½ years, I have worked closely with Career TEC and it’s Program Director, Patricia Parker- Flores, to place students and graduates in construction related positions throughout our organization. It has been a very rewarding and successful experience. To date, we have placed six of Career TEC’s students and graduates, four of whom have secured full-time positions within our organization and two others that have since moved on to explore other career opportunities. Because of our continued success and the quality of candidates we have found at Career TEC, we will continue to use them as a valuable resource to find and develop candidates that have what it takes to grow within our organization and become a part of a very successful and talented team.

    “After touring the fasciitis I was amazed at the variety of training opportunities they had available for the students, I immediately thought of 4 to 5 areas in which working with LPVEC, their staff and students could benefit the Boys & Girls Club of West Springfield”
