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

Registration for career education job training programs requires successful completion of the entrance assessment, and satisfactory arrangement of 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 enrollment is confirmed.

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