Perhaps the best testament to the advantages of the Bristol-Plymouth Co-op Program comes from our partners and alumni... in their own words.
“I would just say that our involvement with Vocational programs and co-op students, we feel, is vital to our industry. As the skilled workforce in any industry matures and approaches retirement, there must be a new wave of skilled workers to take their place and carry the industry forward. Vocational programs help feed that important cycle...”

"As a 2016 graduate, my experience through Bristol Plymouth’s Co-op program not only helped me throughout my trade, but also taught me the fundamentals of many important characteristics. I was part of the H.V.A.C shop and was grateful enough to land an opportunity for a job as an H.V.A.C technician. While working, I got the knowledge to develop skills in the trade, communications with customers and co-workers, and personal finance. This competency led me to go to college for marine engineering, where my talents from H.V.A.C helped me with my courses. Co-op is a great opportunity for young and striving students to educate themselves in the real world of work while getting a salary at hand. Co-op was an amazing experience for me and it could be the same for you!"
