Our 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 train for jobs that are in-demand by employers and our curriculum is carefully developed in partnership with industry employers, and we work closely with employer recruiters and human resources representatives to match job-ready students to employer needs. Our goal is to train you and assist you getting a good job.

CET is a non-profit, community-based organization. Deciding to get job training and what to train for are big decisions. We are here to help. You should never feel rushed or pressured and only sign-up if you think it’s right for you. Please consider visiting us and taking a tour of our facilities.

If you are looking for job training, we think you’ll like what you see.
