Technical Competency Credit

Technical Competency Credit leads from high school to technical training, college degrees, and high-demand careers.

Technical Competency Credit is intended to give high school students an early start on a college Technical program. High school juniors or seniors may enroll in approved Technical Competency Credit courses taught by instructors at their high schools, which allows them the opportunity to earn North Idaho College Technical credit and move from high school to NIC without having to repeat technical courses.

Technical Competency Credit enable students to:

  • earn college credits at no or low cost while they are still in high school
  • take advantage of a national and state effort which emphasizes collaboration between high schools and Idaho technical colleges where instructors at both institutions have worked together to design a system in which students can move from high school to college without having to repeat courses
  • get prepared for careers in high skill, high wage, or high demand occupations in current or emerging professions.
