Student Success Stories
Thank You Educators For All You Do For Our Students!
Cristie completed her training with the Northern Arizona Vocational Institute of Technology in their Heavy Equipment Operations program about 2 weeks before actually graduating from high school.
Cristie already has a good command and knowledge of nearly 20 different pieces of equipment ranging from a skid steer, a blade, a scraper, backhoe, loader, excavator, 10 wheel dump truck and much more.
Cristie became extremely interested in the construction industry after attending the AZCCD, event held at the National Guard Papago Site in Phoenix during her last year in Jr. High School. Her interest became stronger after her freshman and sophomore year when she again attended the same AZCCD Event and learned more about the industry, especially from women that were in it and loving it.
At the end of her sophomore year she learned that NAVIT was offering a brand new program of Heavy Equipment Operations that is partnered with Central Arizona College and she applied and was accepted. She has learned to run equipment, as well as completing courses on surveying, grade staking, soil testing and mine safety.
