How does it work?
Local employers help us design these training programs to teach you the skills they are looking for. You’ll learn only what you need to know (and nothing you don’t) for the job. Job shadowing and on-the-job experience are part of every course, propelling you to the top of their hiring lists. After you complete your training, our staff will work with you until you get hired and ensure you are secure in your career.
Why these careers?
These are livable wage careers in the Syracuse area where employers are in the greatest need of well-trained entry-level employees. If you need a job, we will train you and help you get hired. More programs will be added as time goes on.
How much does it cost?
Our goal is to keep these programs within reach of any student who can receive Pell grants and Stafford loans so that no student should have to pay out of pocket while in school. You may qualify for enough financial aid to cover the entire cost of the program! Give us a call so we can help you get to work.
