Grand Rapids Community College Job Training classes run 34 hours per week and approximately 20 weeks in length. Our hands-on training operates as much like private industry and business as possible. Upon completion you will receive job placement assistance. In most programs we enroll new participants every month, which means that you don't have to wait until next semester to begin working toward a better future.

After entering any of the programs offered by Grand Rapids Community College Job Training, you will be assisted by the support services staff and instructors to determine the most appropriate training plan for you. Program curricula are based on specific objectives recommended by employers. You are continually evaluated by recording skills you have accomplished. This process is used to measure progress and eventual completion of your training program.

After reaching your maximum level of attainment you will be recommended for placement. All evaluative materials and program information will be available for inspection by referring and monitoring agencies and prospective employers.

A certificate of completion will be presented to you after meeting the minimum requirements for the program of your choice.
