To help you update your skills and keep pace with the current job market, Waubonsee is offering several new and improved programs as part of the TAACCCT project. Spring courses start Jan. 20. 

Laboratory Technology
If you enjoy hands-on science experiments but don't know much about career options in science, Waubonsee's Laboratory Technology program may be a good choice for you. Gain basic lab skills needed by employers in many diverse industries while learning what type of science-related career is the best fit for you. Earn a certificate or an associate degree to set you on the path to a rewarding career.  

Advanced Manufacturing 
Are you interested in how things are made? Whatever part of the manufacturing process you want to learn about — computer-aided design, automation, precise machining, or welding — you can study it with our courses, certificates and degrees. 

Automotive Recycling 
Did you know that roughly 85 percent of a car can be repurposed or recycled? Of course, it all has to be done in a way that is safe for people and the environment, and that's where automotive recycling professionals come in. Learn the basics in Waubonsee's one-of-a-kind automotive recycling certificate program.   

Healthcare and Manufacturing Bridge Programs
If you want to build your basic skills or prepare for the GED test while also training for a career in healthcare or manufacturing, our bridge programs are for you. You won't pay tuition, and you'll finish as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) or with an OSHA 10-Hour Safety Card for work in manufacturing.   

The development of these programs was funded through federal grant funds from the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Program and the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006. $1,351,683.53, or 78% of the total costs, were from federal sources.
