Explore Nontraditional Occupations

Non-Traditional Occupations (NTO) are careers in which less than 25 percent of the workforce is made up of one gender. For Nicolet College this could include women in welding, IT, criminal justice and automotive. For men this could include cosmetology and nursing. It's important to consider all of your career options, which may include a non-traditional line of work.  Some advantages of non-traditional occupations are higher wages, good benefits, advancement opportunities and work you enjoy.

"Thank you for having such an enriching program available to us! I feel comfortable saying that I've learned more applicable life skills in the last few months, during this program alone, than any other class or certification I've had before. I would recommend it to all Nicolet students."
