NDSCS President Dr. John Richman has been named Trustee of the Board of National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), a coalition of education and business partners working to develop standardized, industry-driven certifications across the transportation, energy, and aviation industries. The College has worked in conjunction with NC3 since its establishment in 2009 and serves as one of the eleven Leadership Schools.

As a Leadership School, NDSCS works with other NC3 partners to develop instructional material, provide train-the-trainer opportunities and mentor other education members. "NDSCS's involvement with NC3 enables us to provide our students top-notch training based on industry standards from certified instructors in world-class facilities," Richman said. "It's a win for our students and industry."

The nine member board includes industry and education leaders selected to represent a diverse range of geographic, economic and educational perspectives. "Each of these board members, along with the leadership colleges are the most progressive educators in the country," said Roger Tadajewski, NC3 Executive Director. "This is an exciting journey in which we have the best leaders at the helm."

NC3 first national office is located at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, Wis. For more information visit
