Do you need a job or a better job?

You’re thinking you need training, but something you can complete quickly. You're not sure you can do well in school and you think you can't afford the cost. 

This isn’t your traditional "school" and you may be eligible for training scholarships*!

There are two Career Link Essentials+ Options:

1. Manufacturing Career Link Essentials+

Successfully complete this four-week, 56-hour evening program and build skills that manufacturers want that include computers, OSHA/safety, teamwork, communication, blueprint reading and industrial math.   

      OR

2. Non-Manufacturing Career Link Essentials+

Same program as above without the manufacturing specific classes.  It is a two-week, 32-hour daytime program.
