For the 2020-2021 year, we are pleased to provide 11 Career Development Programs. These programs are designed to educate students for the purpose of job entry or career advancement.  The links below provide a full program description:    

Admission to educational programs accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) are open to students 18 years or older who hold a high school diploma or GED and are looking to enter or re-enter the workforce or start a new career. These requirements may be waived if the student is enrolling in a specially designated program such as the Adult Diploma Program (ADP) or programs designed to enhance a high school students’ credential attainment. All exceptions may require proper documentation and prior administrative approval.

Our Career Development Programs include placement assistance and employability skills training provided by Career Services. An ongoing database of available employment opportunities is maintained and made available to all job seekers. Job seekers are directed to potential employment opportunities based on their skills, training and experience.

Students must provide their own hand tools when necessary. Various tests for certification are important to document the skills an individual has mastered. Certification is frequently required for many jobs especially higher paying positions. Some certification tests are part of the curriculum, advanced testing may require additional costs.
