To keep its career and technical training programs up-to-date with state-of-the-art technology, Four County Career Center instructors are eligible to participate in a work experience program sponsored by the career center. Instructors have the opportunity to participate with a local employer in an internship experience in the area of their expertise. Following their internship time, the instructors include the up-to-date training methods into their curriculum to give the best possible education to students. The local internship site is not responsible for wages to instructors during their training. Pictured is Stephanie Pippin, veterinarian assistant instructor, (right) who had the opportunity to work at Country Dog Salon in Archbold. Pippin is shown working with owners Becca Smith (left) and Angelina Sorge. Pippin will utilize the training she received to train the students at the career center in grooming techniques using scissors, bathing and nail trimming of all types of dogs.
