Our Approach

We offer a customer-centered approach to training and education by connecting necessary adult basic education, occupational training, career and academic advising for students to prepare for, obtain, and progress in a career. This includes counseling and supportive services to help an individual in achieving their overall goals.

Our evidence-based curriculum and techniques allow us to provide education offered concurrently within the same context as workforce preparation activities and training through a multitude of formats including instructor-led learning, eLearning, blended learning, hands-on training, coaching, and mentoring.

We offer rolling admissions on a weekly basis through an informal orientation where we learn about perspective participants while providing information concerning our program.
