• Employment Skills Training

    Certificate

    The Employment Skills Training Certificate provides a quick entry strategy for learning the knowledge and skills necessary to start or change a career path.

    The certificate combines college courses with specified hands-on instruction at a local employer to improve employability. The student’s goals and needs are combined with information from employers, the labor market and the college to determine the knowledge and skills needed to obtain employment in a specific occupation. The student receives an individualized Employment Skills Training (EST) plan.

    In addition to preparing a person for employment, the individualized EST plan guides the student in gaining more education and training which develops the student’s career path. The program is open entry/open exit, allowing students to begin any term.

    Program Requirements

    A certificate is earned by completing at least 12 credits of occupationally related college-level classes. For every three occupationally related credits, one cooperative work experience credit may be included in the plan.

    An EST plan must be developed with and approved by a department’s faculty advisor.

    All of the college’s collegiate level credit courses are eligible to be included in the certificate. Developmental courses may be included as prerequisites in a plan but can not be part of the EST certificate.

    Program Outcomes

    Program outcomes are specific to the student’s goals and may include:

    • Individualized plan detailing the college courses to be completed and the knowledge and skills to be learned.
    • Occupation specific knowledge and skills developed on the job and in the classroom.
    • Basic employment skills, job search skills, career management skills and/or an introductory contact with an employer(s) and/or hiring manager(s).

    Careers

    Completion of an EST certificate can impact any career.
