Career Foundations


This program will assist student in becoming more proficient in the areas of Reading for Information, Applied Math, Locating Information, and Job Search Skills - skills that are basic to all education, training, employment, and life in general. Entrance exams for all programs are administered in C\F, as well as the WorkKeys CRC and other program online certifications.      

This program is individualized according to the specific needs of each student. Students learn at their own pace in a positive, non-threatening environment that is sensitive to their individual needs. A online computer-managed educational program is used to assist in the instructional process. Not only is the program designed to assist students enrolled in the full-time programs, but it is also available to individuals who desire to enroll solely to improve their skills or prepare for entrance test such as the Compass for nursing and surgical tech., and ACT/Compass for college.

Career Foundations is a unique opportunity for the students to improve their reading, math, language and data skills needed to perform well in the shop areas. Many students have been out of school for an extended period of time and may need to review math, reading or language skills just to refresh their memories. Others may never have been proficient in these areas, and this class is the student's second chance to sharpen these skills. Some may be learning these skills for the first time, now with a strong incentive to learn in order to succeed in their shops. This learning environment encourages students to ask questions one on one with the instructor, therefore promoting a more open, less traditional classroom atmosphere. Helping people meet their goals-- whether it is passing an entrance exam or becoming better prepared for the work force--that is what the Career Foundations program is all about.
