their fairy manuals.

LCC has been ranked one of the nation’s best
technical schools by Real Work Matters. RWM.org is an online resource hub for
students interested in technical training.
LCC ranked second out of 704 schools
nationwide and first in Michigan. According to RWM.org, “LCC had one of
the widest selections of programs available for students interested in
technical training at the certificate and associate degree level. As one of the
largest community colleges in Michigan, LCC is also more affordable than many
schools in our ranking. LCC shines for having a lower cost of attendance when
taking into account tuition and fees, books and supply costs, and how much aid
is received by students at the school.”
Included in Real Work Matters assessment are fire science, aviation technology
and Health and Human Services careers like dental hygienist, respiratory
therapist, ultrasound technician, emergency medical technician (EMT) and
“LCC has worked hard to provide cutting-edge programs to address the extensive
need for highly skilled technicians in the workplace,” Technical Careers Dean
Mark Cosgrove said. “There are hundreds of jobs in our community, and over 6
million across the country that go unfilled simply because applicants do not
possess the skill set necessary to claim those high-paying career
“This national recognition from RWM.org is a great honor for the college,”
Health and Human Services Dean Margie Clark said. “LCC has dedicated and highly
qualified faculty who are committed to student-centered teaching and learning
that leads to student success. The real-life experiences our students learn
positions them to transition to the workplace with confidence.”
