For many of us, the beginning of a new year serves as a fresh start for the areas in our life we wish to improve. That may mean heading to the gym to start a healthier lifestyle, or it may mean looking for opportunities to better your career.
Get started down the path to a new career by enrolling in FastForward training at your local community college. Not sure where to start? We’ve broken it down in five easy steps.
Step One: Meet with your FastForward Coach
FastForward Coaches are here to help you explore your options, plan for your career, and guide you at every step of the way.
Step Two: Check out grants & other funding
We’ll help you navigate the financial aid process to help offset some of the FastForward tuition training costs.
Step Three: Register for class
Sign up for your credential course online or in person at your local community college.
Step Four: Complete the course (and any internship/externship requirements)
Each credential program is different, but most run anywhere from six to 12 weeks. Some programs may offer a short internship or externship (such as job shadowing an employee) before graduating. Your FastForward coach can give you more information about internship opportunities.
Step Five: Pass your credential certification
After you finish your credential program, you’re ready to sit for your exam, earn your certification and move your life forward
