The instructors are top-notch professionals who do not compromise quality and integrity from their students. All who choose to attend this college should be prepared to be treated as adults. It is this key ingredient that separates this college from others. The bar is held high. A student either rises to expectations in academics and behavior or makes alternative arrangements for the following year. Students must learn to work together to accomplish academic goals both in and outside of the classroom. Opportunities for on site learning experiences are also a strong element of the college's ethos.

My experience as a student at a SUNY Alfred State college satellite school has been excellent so far. I am currently going to school at Northland Workforce Training Center and I am enrolled in SUNY Alfred states welding program . At first I was overwhelmed seeing that I haven’t been enrolled in school in almost 10 years but with help from my instructor, career coach and other support staff in place it made for a easy transition back into school environment
I like the hands on training and all the lab work that we get to do on our day to day throughout the semester, my instructor is new but is still learning the ins and outs of instructing yet is helpful when needed, one thing I would change would be the communication could be a little more efficient , sometimes we don't find things out until a couple of days before which makes them hard to fit into your schedule.
