Choose Your Future Career

The spring 2020 JumpStart programs will be completed by June 11.

The cause of the delay in completion was the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. As a result, the summer JumpStart programs have been cancelled. Our fall 2020 craft and office administration programs will start the week of August 17 with registration/orientation sessions. We will start taking applications for the fall semester program the week of July 6.
