ACT Work Keys Assessment
We provide ACT WorkKeys assessments to all qualified students. These assessments are used by a wide variety of employers for hiring and promotional opportunities by evaluating applicant and employee skills. The results of these assessments can enhance our graduates' portfolios as they enter the workforce.
To prepare for the ACT WorkKeys assessments, our students use a computer-based application called KeyTrain, developed by ACT. KeyTrain is also used in our high school diploma program and is available in all our computer labs and on dorm computers.
Our center provides monthly certification training in CPR, first aid, automated electronic defibrillators, and blood borne pathogens. This training is taught by staff and student instructors who have been certified by the American Red Cross.
This certification course includes eight hours of Red Cross training videos and hands-on training.
Students who achieve CPR certification and are bilingual can assist the American Red Cross in teaching CPR classes to the local Hispanic community.
In ServSafe Certification training, students learn the essentials of food service safety. This certification is especially important for students in our Culinary Arts career technical training program.
