Prospective students will have the opportunity to tour the recently remodeled, state-of-the-art lab, learn about the courses included in the one-year diploma program, and the job prospects after graduation.
“The Open House will also be a great chance for people to meet our two new Auto instructors,” said Brigitte Parsons, dean of Trade and Industry at Nicolet. “Both have extensive experience and are experts in the automotive field.”

Kolasa has several specialty certifications, including ASE Master Technician and ASE L1 Advanced Engine Performance. He’s a graduate of Northcentral Technical College and the University of Wisconsin – Stout, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Career, Technical, Education, and Training.
