Financial aid is available for both courses.

These job training courses lead to National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) certification. These courses do not require students to apply for admission or take an entrance exam, but students must first complete the Core Curriculum: Introductory Craft Skills Course. The next Core Curriculum: Introductory Craft Skills course is scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays, 6-10 p.m., Nov. 9-Dec. 16.

Due to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, students will be required to wear a facial covering, have their temperatures taken and pass a health screening before entering the classroom. Social distancing will also be required.

The courses will be held at Victoria College’s Liberty Street Industrial Training Center located at 1404 N. Liberty Street in Victoria.
