Live Work

Certain occupational areas require specific skills or competency mastery that can best be obtained or demonstrated in a laboratory environment with real items or projects. A laboratory environment introduces the "customer dimension" into personal service occupations, such as cosmetology and esthetics, and provides real-world working conditions to such industrial and technical occupations as auto mechanics, auto body repair, and others.
