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.

In addition to job training, GalvestonCollege offers career counseling and job placement assistance.

Tuition is free for those accepted into the programs. However, students must purchase their own steel-toed boots.

  • 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. (Student must present Registration Acknowledgment Card at the time of enrollment.)

Following acceptance into the program, the applicant must meet with Galveston College’s job placement navigator and bring required documents.
