How to Obtain a Driver's Permit in PA:

Clinical Experience

Some programs at CMTHS utilize clinical experiences during the class period to assist learning about the occupation and/or to develop certain skills. Instructors observe students during these sessions.

Cooperative Education

CMTHS Cooperative Education Program permits students to accept a job directly related to the course in which they are enrolled. While on Co-Op, students attend the sending school for one-half day and work on the job for the remainder of the day as a paid employee of the participating employer.

In order for students to qualify for Cooperative Education, their instructor must recommend them. Students under the age of 18 years must have working papers from their sending school. If students cannot report to the job for any reason, they must call the employer and CMTHS attendance office. Any day that they are not needed on the job, they must report to their classroom at CMTHS. If they should lose the Cooperative Education job, they must return to their CMTHS class immediately. Students are required to return to CMTHS for classroom activities as scheduled by their instructor.

To qualify for a Co-Op position, a student must:

•    Complete all necessary paperwork
•    Be in good academic and attendance standings
•    Be able to get along with co-workers and supervisors
•    Have little or no discipline incidents
•    Have a strong work ethic
•    Have completed required workplace and leadership tasks, as determined by the program's curriculum

Job Shadowing

All students are encouraged to seek out job shadowing opportunities to further their career exploration.
