North Dakota State College of Science President John Richman, Ph.D., has been named Chairman of the Board for the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), a network of education providers and corporations that supports, advances and validates new and emerging technology skills in the transportation, aviation and energy industry sectors. Previously, he has served as both the Vice Chair and Trustee.
The NC3 was established to address the need for strong industry partnerships with educational institutions in order to develop, implement and sustain industry-recognized portable certifications that have strong validation and assessment standards. NDSCS has worked in conjunction with the NC3 since its establishment in 2009 and serves as one of 32 Leadership Schools.
As a Leadership School, the College works with other NC3 partners to develop instructional material, provide train-the-trainer opportunities and mentor other education members. The 11-member board includes industry and education leaders selected to represent a diverse range of geographic, economic and educational perspectives.
The NC3 office is located at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, Wis. For more information visit www.nc3.net.
