Biz Chat 025 Workforce Training Opportunities you NEED to know about!
ACCS is every Alabamian's one-stop shop to training for some of the highest-earning, highest demand jobs opportunities in AL & nationwide. With 288 degree and certificate programs AND Open Admissions, we connect our students to real-life experiences for Success! #BizChatAL
At this very moment, employers want workers who are #JobReady on Day 1! With work-based learning that ties in college instruction with REAL work experience, our students get an edge in the competitive workforce. We just received a $12M federal grant to expand #apprenticeships. These efforts mean that more Alabamians will have an opportunity to study and earn credentials AT THE SAME TIME that they gain on-the-job training for a career. It takes away that moment of a resume stacked with education, and no real experience to go with it. #BizChatAL
The GENERAL difference is that 2-yrs award AA/AS degrees, while 4-yrs award a bachelor's. In AL, one BIG difference between CORE classes at a #CommunityCollege (2yr) vs. 4-yr (university) is cost. You literally pay FAR LESS than ½ the cost to take your basic classes with us. In addition, the focus that we are able to give to individual students because of our smaller class sizes allows a special focus on every single student. It “matters” to us: we want every student to achieve their best life. #BizChatAL
If you need a "next best step" in your life, whether it's a GED, a work credential for better employment, or a degree or #apprenticeship to give you an edge, then an #Alabama #communitycollege is right for you. Our teams help you navigate life while you study.
If you're an employer, our #WorkforceDevelopment teams are in every region of the state working FOR and WITH you to understand your needs. By connecting with your nearest #CommunityCollege, you can get help delivering the training and workforce strategies you need. #BizChatAL
Myths: "It’s 13th grade ." "It’s not a real school." "It’s easy."
Truth: THESE MYTHS ARE FALSE! Just ask some of the hardest workers in some of the highest paid industries in the state. We’re family here. And we’re making waves all throughout the world. #BizChatAL
Thank you, Ebony!
