Our center is located in a single story building at 930 Los Coches Drive in Soledad California.  The CET Soledad offers three training job programs:

• Green Building Construction
• Medical Assistant
• Truck Driver

The building houses three classrooms, a resource room, three well-appointed and up-to-date industrial shop areas. In addition there are administrative offices and a lunch area.  The CET Soledad campus is located within walking distance to a newly constructed shopping center that includes several food establishments, grocery and retail stores and banking.

CET’s open-entry program allows you to be trained and job ready in as little as six months. Our flexible approach to job training is hands-on, highly individualized and self-paced. It includes life skills instruction, workplace simulation, human development, supportive services and job placement assistance.

We only train for jobs that are in-demand by employers and our curriculum is carefully developed in partnership with industry employers. With the input from these employer advisors, CET training programs are kept abreast of technological advancements and of the current requirements in each industry. Also, we work closely with employer recruiters and human resources representatives to match job-ready students to employer needs.

Deciding to get job training is a big decision.  You should never feel pressured to enroll in a program unless you think it’s the right fit for you. CET is a non-profit, community-based organization.  Connect with Us on Facebook, come by and tour our school. We will never rush you, or pressure you and will be there for you when you are ready to take the next step.
