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.
An individual applying to the Quickstart program must:
- Be age 18 or older. (Proof of age is required such as driver’s license or birth certificate.)
- Be a United States citizen or certified to work in the United States. (A Social Security card or original I-9 documentation is required.)
- Meet United States Military Selective Service registration requirements, if male. (Bring your Registration Acknowledgment Card.)
Following acceptance into the program, an applicant must meet with Galveston College’s Job Placement Navigator and bring required documents listed above.
For more information, please contact the Job Placement Navigator, Mary Powers, at 409-944-1287 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
