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.
    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. to review program information and answer questions. Register to attend an upcoming session.
  2. Meet with an admissions advisor.
    The advisor will review curriculum, course objectives, class schedules, career options, placement rates, student expectations, appropriateness of the adult learner to participate in the program, etc.
  3. Take an academic 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.
  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.

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.
