HUOT CAREER AND TECH in the NEWS
NH Business Review, September 2nd, 2016
LACONIA – Each year, over 200 students from Laconia and surrounding communities graduate from high school with a level of trade knowledge that could easily guide them on a career path.
“Our graduates often leave with credentials and certifications usually reserved for working professionals,” says David Warrender, director of career and technical education at the Huot Technical Center, located on Laconia High School’s campus. “Our plumbing and heating students, for example, enter the state apprenticeship program with second-year status, making them much more employable.”
More than 400 juniors and seniors take advantage of the 12 career and technical education (or CTE) programs offered at Huot, ranging from biomedical technology to pre-engineering to the digital media arts.

LACONIA — A poet once mused "We've built tall buildings, but we've not become taller," but a dozen students at the Huot Technical Center are building a small — in fact, very small — building and they are growing in the process.
The students, all seniors in their second year of the Building Construction program, are building a house, a "tiny house," just 192 square feet with an 80-square-foot loft set on a wheeled trailer. The Huot Technical Center is among four Career Technical Centers participating in this workforce development initiative sponsored by the New Hampshire State Lottery and the New Hampshire Home Builders Association. Altogether, five tiny houses will be built, one each at the Huot Technical Center, Mt. Washington Valley Career and Technical Center, Alvirne High School and two at the Seacoast School of Technology.
