Apprenticeship Programs

Gadsden State Community College and the Alabama Technology Network's center in Gadsden, in partnership with local industries, conduct apprenticeship programs for mold makers, machinists and tool & die makers. The apprenticeship programs are patterned after European models and are registered with the U.S. Department of Labor.

High School Career Technical Training

Beginning in 2015, all high school seniors will take the ACT WorkKeys application test, an assessment system that helps employers select, hire, develop and retain a high-performance workforce.  Successful completion results in Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze-level credentials, and can lead to earning ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate.  Other credentialing programs include MOS, OSHA 10, ASE, NCCER, CPR and ServSafe.
