Adult Career Training Program

Information Sessions for the 2020-2021 class will begin on February 3.

Join a WMCAT Information Session to get a complete overview of our Adult Career Training Program. We offer training in medical billing, medical coding and pharmacy technician.

Each Information Session provides an opportunity to think through which class may be the best fit for you, a chance to sign-up for the program, and next steps. We look forward to meeting you!

Eligibility for the Adult Career Training Program is now as follows:

Have a high school diploma or GED
No felony record (this is a requirement of places of employment for which we are training our students to work)
Experiencing unemployment or underemployment*
Live in Kent County

*Working part-time, multiple part-time jobs, or in a job where potential and skills are not fully utilized.

At WMCAT, we believe in designing programs that are rooted in the needs of people in the community. We recognize that the eligibility requirements for our tuition-free Adult Career Training Program can both ensure we are available to those with the highest need, and at the same time cause us to miss others who could benefit from this opportunity.
