Career Training Program Admissions

Our career training programs provide a certificate in just a few months, not years. All programs focus on skill development through the practical application of the latest industry-aligned equipment and technology.

These programs offer the opportunity for the adult learner to enter or re-enter the workforce with new or upgraded skills. Any adult, 17 years of age or older, may apply for admission.

Career training program admission procedures

  1. Attend an information session.
    The information session will review curriculum, course objectives, class schedules, career options, placement rates, student expectations, and answer questions. Information sessions are held every Weds. from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. and the second Tues. of each month from 6 – 7 p.m. Register to attend an upcoming session.
  2. Take the entrance assessment.
    Appointments to take the CWD Entrance Assessment can be scheduled online. All students must provide proof of a high school diploma, high school equivalency or college degree.
  3. Secure funding.
    You may choose to meet with an admissions advisor or financial aid specialist to discuss funding options.
  4. Complete any program-specific requirements.
    These may include a record of recent health examination and proof of required immunization as required for most health occupation programs.

Registration for career education job training programs requires attendance at an information session, payment of a $25 non-refundable registration fee, successful completion of the entrance assessment, and full payment of tuition. An automated email confirming registration will be sent to the email that is on file. The entire admission process must be completed before registration is confirmed.

For successful completion of a training program, students must adhere to the policies and procedures as outlined in the student handbook, and complete program-related work-based or clinical experience, as required by program curriculum. See specific program requirements for details.
