Greenheck Fan is very proud of its involvement in the cooperative education process and is committed to furthering a student's education by partnering them with full-time engineers/employees and providing hands-on experience. All co-op students are treated as "real" employees, as we understand gaining real life experience is key in this relationship. We have been extremely pleased with the results of the co-op program, and have found it to be a win-win relationship. Our co-op program runs January thru August and June thru December. Any questions can be addressed to: Anna Brown (email@example.com)
