We’re committed to providing the highest quality training, and to supporting our alumni as they embark on successful, rewarding careers. Students, alumni, and faculty benefit from our ongoing relationships with individuals and organizations.

NBSS alumni practice craft traditions across a wide range of roles. Many are self-employed, while others work as private contractors or employees of corporations, small businesses, government agencies, nonprofits, and schools. In fact, 80% of our faculty members are NBSS alumni.

You can find specific employment data for each of our Full-Time programs on their individual pages.
