- allied health
- automotive maintenance and light repair
- biomedical science

- culinary arts
- electrical construction

CCPS is currently looking for employers interested in employing highly motivated high school seniors for part-time positions.
“Participating in Fusion not only helps the students learn the world-of-work in their area of concentration, but it also benefits the employers and the community,” said the press release.
Partnering with CCPS, employers are given the opportunity to reduce training costs to help train student employees in work-related skills.
Participating employers will receive assistance in selecting qualified personnel through the Fusion application process.
Those interested in participating in the Fusion Cooperative Education program as an employer are urged to complete the Fusion Cooperative Education Employer Interest Survey.
Information collected from the survey will be added to a list of potential co-op employers that CCPS will share with the program’s student applicants.
