Accelerated Careers in Technology (ACT)
The ACT Pathway Program is a unique program at the college that provides education in "acceleration." What this means is that students are enrolled into an aggressive set of college courses so that they can complete quickly and enter the job market within 6 to 12 months. While ACT students are primarily enrolled in college to obtain specific skill sets and knowledge many complete skills recognition awards, college certificate and associate degrees during their time with us.
Being an ACT student requires a high degree of commitment because of the "intensive scheduling of classes." However, we are there with you to assist you to succeed. If you are looking for a challenging experience that will transform your life, give us a call (209) 575-6394.
