Accelerated Short-Term Training Programs

Short-Term Training programs are state-approved certificate programs that are offered to fill current openings in the local job market. The format for these programs is accelerated, intense and condensed. A group of students completes all the didactic courses in a certificate program together, attending class for approximately 30 to 40 hours each week. The programs include workplace skill training as well as job search skills. These are fast paced courses which require study time outside of class. Students are encouraged to be focused on their studies and avoid employment during the course.

These programs are cost recovery. The college makes every effort to keep the price for these cost recovery programs close to the tuition based programs, based on a cost per hour of instruction model. The cost of these programs varies. The advertised price for each program or course includes tuition, fees, books, and supplies. Students’ costs above and beyond course fees may include: Criminal background checks, drug screening, immunization, licensing costs and CPR certification.
