This intensive 150 hour course (10 weeks/15.5 hour per week) is designed for immigrants with low to intermediate English language skills that are searching for their first job in the US.

Graduates of the program receive a certificate detailing their competency achieved for twelve employability skill standards and their attendance hours.
