Quickstart Interest Form

The first steps to learning a new trade could be free!

Thanks to a grant from the Texas Workforce Commission, Galveston College is able to offer a new Quickstart program designed to help individuals find entry-level jobs in the fast-growing HVAC and electrical industries. In the eight-week programs, students will be presented with the basics of a trade, including safety procedures, proper tool usage, regulations, codes and more. The Quickstart program is designed for individuals to learn the basics of a trade and start making money right away. Galveston College not only offers job training, but career counseling and help with job placement as well. Tuition is covered for everyone accepted into the program. However, students accepted into the program will need to purchase their own steel toe boots.
