The NMTI Trades Experience

On behalf of our students and NMTech team, we are grateful to our community leaders, patrons, stakeholders, public and private partners for their unending support and continuous display of interest and camaraderie. Your contributions toward our overall growth in one way or another is an investment in the people of the CNMI – in their education and toward our workforce development efforts.

Come visit our campus in Lower Base at anytime to witness the products of what real-time hands-on learning is about. Our classrooms and workshops differ greatly from that of a traditional classroom, each room is geared to spark interest in specialized trades and is equipped for optimal learning experiences – you just have to see it for yourself.

NMTech currently offers courses in areas specific to construction, automotive, culinary and hospitality. Through continued partnerships, we will be expanding and enhancing our suite of services to include maritime, cosmetology, solar energy, aviation, OSHA-10 and OSHA-30 general industry, and the Hard Hat Heroes program.

Thank you for visiting our website! Scroll and click away, but we’re more excited to see you on campus!
