The CET Difference

Employer Connections
CET knows who’s hiring and what skills they’re looking for—and we base our training programs on this knowledge.

Support Services
We’ll help you connect to services within the community, support you with basic skill development in math and ESL, and help you identify barriers to your success and how to overcome them.

Expand Your Skill Set
Whether you’re training for a job in a medical office or a construction site, get hands-on experience while you’re still in the classroom.

CET Financial Aid Officers can help you identify sources of potential financial aid and fill out the required forms.


CET is accredited by the Council on Occupational Education and approved for VA benefits. This allows eligible students to apply for federal financial assistance programs to help with tuition and basic living costs.
