In collaboration with Jackson Public Schools, Nissan North America, and Central Mississippi Planning and Development District (CMPDD), selected students have the opportunity to partake in the "Nissan JPS Career Development Center Spring Internship Program." These senior students, affiliated with Jackson Public School District’s Career Development Center, will gain firsthand training and experience.

During the program, students will engage in training sessions led by mechanics, technicians, and mechanical systems specialists. This hands-on experience aims to equip students with educational skills, enhancing their skill set, improving job performance, and addressing any existing skills gaps. The industrial and mechanical training courses are tailored to meet the needs of both current and future employers. Covering a variety of topics, these programs include hydraulic systems repair and maintenance training, mechanical training for field service technicians, and facilitate self-paced, flexible learning experiences guided by industry expert coursework.

It's important to note that this internship program is exclusively available to JPS students enrolled at CDC.
