Mifflinburg High School has SUN Tech’s Criminal Justice and HVAC programs on display.

Students in Criminal Justice learn the skills required for employment in professions like law enforcement, security, corrections, 911 dispatch, store security and military police.  Criminal Justice students acquire these skills through classroom training and hands-on experience. The Criminal Justice program features simulators to create real-life experiences including a 9-11 Dispatch simulator and firearms training simulator.

HVAC & Plumbing Technology students at SUN Tech learn basic system design as well as the installation and servicing of modern HVAC systems through practice in the laboratory or at a real job site.  SUN emphasizes developing student skills used in residential and commercial installation and repair jobs.  In addition to residential and commercial plumbing and heating applications, we introduce students in HVAC & Plumbing Technology to green technologies including solar and geothermal applications.

Students in both Criminal Justice and HVAC have opportunities to earn college credits while they attend SUN Tech.  Please contact us for more information!

SUN Area Technical Institute’s Criminal Justice and Food Service programs teamed up to learn about Nutraloaf: a food found only in the American prison system. Nutraloaf is a product made for prisoners to provide all of the nutrients they’re required to be fed by law, in the most flavorless, unappetizing way possible. The practice of serving Nutraloaf as a punishment has gone to court many times, but persists to this day.

The video below shows students from Criminal Justice explaining Nutraloaf and the legal legacy it’s left behind it.  The Food Service program then follows up on the research by making several types of Nutraloaf and inviting students and instructors to taste test. The verdict? It’s gross!

On May 1, 2013 Union County Chief Deputy Scott Hahn came to SUN Area Technical Institute with his partner, K9 King. The Criminal Justice program was proud to present Hahn with a check for $200 to support the K9 Unit, which is funded exclusively with community donations. The money was raised by participating in Dress Down Days throughout the school year.

You can say one thing for a career in law enforcement: it’s bound to be interesting! Pictured here are Criminal Justice students Tyriq Dorman and Keith Romine practicing arrest and handcuffing techniques.

Criminal Justice offers the entry-level skills and knowledge required for employment in criminal justice professions such as police officer, security officer, correctional officer, 911 dispatcher, store security and military police.  These skills are acquired through a combination of classroom training and hands-on experience.  The program offers job shadowing experiences, featured guest speakers, and field trips. To remain state of the art, the program uses three simulators to create real life experiences.

Students in Criminal Justice will have the opportunity to earn multiple Emergency Management certifications as well as college credits while enrolled at SUN Tech.  Interested in learning more?  Check out our photo gallery on Facebook, visit the  Criminal Justice program website, or talk to your guidance counselor to schedule a visitation today!

SUN Tech’s annual Feed-a-Friend food drive is over and the results are in.  We collected a total of 5,774 items which will be donated to several local charities to be determined. The top participants were Criminal Justice (pictured), HVAC, and Dental Health.  Thanks to all of our students, parents, and faculty who helped make this one of the most successful food drives we’ve had in years!
