GTCC's POWER (Providing Opportunities for Workforce training and Education Review) program serves students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. POWER classes are focused on improving basic reading, math, computer and writing skills, as well as employability skills and career preparation.

 Students can receive more specific career training through our POWER Pathways classes. These courses give students the skills to find meaningful career or volunteer opportunities, promoting self-sufficiency. Click here to learn more about POWER Pathways

 Placement in the POWER program is dependent upon students achieving valid assessment scores on a TABE or CASAS test. Students may enroll at any time during the semester after scheduling an individual orientation and completing an assessment.
