In addition to the Open House, CPI is partnering with the CareerLink to hold a job fair, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., on the same day as the Open House.
“The job fair is a great addition to our Open House” said Todd Taylor, vice president of Post-Secondary Education.

Margie Eby of the Centre County CareerLink shared, “The PA CareerLink team has recruited a fantastic lineup of 38 businesses representing various industries including healthcare, manufacturing, service, education, construction, transportation, retail and government.
“Participants include Penn State University, FBI, CATA, Glenn O. Hawbaker, Commonwealth of PA, HRI, Mount Nittany Health, Centre County Government, Spring Benner Walker Joint Authority, Envinity, and more. A driver’s license or state issued-ID is required to enter the job fair.”
Visitors to the Open House will have the opportunity to see many of the secondary and adult education program areas, participate in hands-on demonstrations in the various program areas, meet our instructors and speak with current CPI students about their experiences.
Further, CPI’s heavy equipment and CDL simulators will be open and available for the public to try. Free financial aid information will be available from CPI’s in-house experts to help those thinking about grants and aid for college.
