Short-Term Training Programs

Students interested in flexible training schedules may choose from several short-term training programs, courses, and workshops. Courses may be offered in a traditional classroom environment, fully online, or in a hybrid format and may be offered on a credit or non-credit basis. Short-term training courses vary in length from 4 to 500+ hours, change quarterly, and often may be applied to various industry requirements for continuing education or professional development.

Some short-term training programs are composed of a course or series of courses mapped to an industry-recognized certification or license. Such courses often use curriculum and materials specified by industry associations to assist students to prepare for proctored certification examinations. Other short-term training programs include training in the skills necessary for specific entry-level job opportunities.

The menu of courses is subject to change as labor market demands change. Courses listed may not be offered every quarter. Consult the quarterly class schedule for short-term options and costs or contact the Workforce and Community Education office at 253-589-5575.
