Workforce Training & Development

Whether you want to change your career, upskill, reskill, or just want to learn something new, Community Education’s Workforce Training programs are for you! Our non-credit programs provide nationally recognized credentials to get you in and prepare you for the workforce quickly. We offer non-credit programs in a variety of formats:

in person icon In-Person: Programs offered at Estrella Mountain Community College at either our main campus in Avondale or our EMCC @ WestMEC facility in Buckeye. On-campus, in-person, traditional lecture style
live online Icon Live Online: Instructor-led, online classes with structured days and times that you will attend via a video conference platform (i.e. Zoom, Webex, and Google Meets).
self paced online Self-Paced Online: Complete classes at your own pace at any time, anywhere. Although there is not a live component, many of the programs provide a dedicated one-on-one mentor and student support services while you complete your program.

** In-Person and Live Online programs have specific start dates. Please see below for more information. Self-Paced programs do not have a specific start date, you can start at your own time! **
