Quick Careers Training

Are you unemployed or under-employed, looking for a better job, or lacking job-specific skills? Are you being turned down for job opportunities because your skills are not up-to-date?  Do you lack an employment credentials? Improving your future is quicker than you think. 

The Quick Careers Training program offers a wide variety of short-term training options at affordable prices. Courses are offered during day and evening hours, including hybrid courses*.  Additionally, students may be eligible to sit for and earn a third-party, industry-recognized credential**.

*Hybrid Courses are taught using two instructional formats, combining traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with computer-based distance education.  Students registered in a Hybrid Course MUST attend the first day of class. Students who are absent the first day of class, will not be allowed to enter class.

**Third-party, Industry Credential tests are conducted outside of GTCC with an additional cost.

Requirements to Register for Quick Careers Training:

• A high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma (GED or HiSet Diploma) is required.
• Individuals must also have good computer skills.
• Meet pre-requisites specific for various courses.

Quick Careers Training Requirements For Successful Completion:

• Earn an overall average of 80% in each major course subject area.

The fee for the Human Resources Development class is $78.00; students may be eligible for a fee waiver.

The NC Career Readiness exam is $30.00. Students are responsible for the cost of the exam. Payment of the fees will be discussed in class.

The Human Resources Development and NC Career Readiness Certificate classes/labs, are components of the courses.
