NW-SCC offers free CTE 101 training certification classes

Northwest-Shoals Community College will offer free CTE 101 training certification classes through the Pre-Apprenticeship and Ready to Work programs beginning in January. The deadline to register for these classes is Jan. 18.

According to Tara Branscome, executive director of Adult Education and Workforce Strategies, the 16-week CTE 101 program gives participants an opportunity to develop career skills, explore career technical education and get connected with a mentor.

“During the spring semester, our participants have an opportunity to earn as many as 14 workforce certifications,” said Branscome. “Our mentors help our participants stay focused and give them that little bit of encouragement we all need at times.”

CTE 101 and Ready to Work Programs have limited seats available and will accept participants on a first-come, first-serve basis. Certifications that are available through CTE 101 include Alabama Certified Worker, FEMA Active Shooter MSSC Safety and Logistics, OSHA 10 and Workkeys.

CTE 101 classes will be offered on the Shoals campus, during the day and in the evening.
