Accelerated Short Term Training

Accelerated/Short Term training programs and courses prepare students for entry level employment in a variety of fields that have a career ladder for advancement. The state approved certificate programs can be completed in four months-ten months and are offered as needed, depending on the current openings in the local job market and the number of interested students.

The format for these programs and courses is intense and condensed. A group of 16 to 24 students completes all the courses in a certificate program together, and attends class for approximately 30 to 40 hours each week. The programs and courses include workplace and job search skills.

The cost of these programs and courses varies. Last year the cost ranged from $4,500 to $8,500, depending on the length of the training and the topic. The advertised price for each program or course includes all tuition, fees, books, and supplies. Cost of the programs is subject to change.

All Accelerated/Short Term trainings over 14 weeks are eligible for financial aid.
