Vantage Adult Education is currently enrolling in full-time and short-term programs, with substantial grant and scholarship opportunities available.
“This is a great opportunity for any graduating seniors and adults interested in upskilling or jump-starting a career in healthcare, public safety or manufacturing, to gain valuable skills at little to no cost,” shares Miriam Owens, Vantage Community Relations Coordinator. “We’ve seen high school seniors enroll in our Adult Education short-term programs in the spring, earning a certification and employer connection prior to graduating high school. We’ve also had an array of adult students who had put their career goals on hold, then completed one of our programs and moved forward in their careers.”
Short-term programs currently enrolling through the Vantage Adult Education are, State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA), day and evening classes held in March, Welding begins March, and Phlebotomy begins in April. All of these courses will allow individuals to expand their knowledge and concentrate on industry credentials they wish to achieve.
“Vantage Adult Education is able to offer students the opportunity to improve or gain new skills for a better career foundation, a chance to earn competitive wage, and have your classes paid for through the grant opportunities.” says Owens.
A free short-term certificate grant is available to students who enroll in EMT, STNA, Phlebotomy, Welding, CDL, and Police Academy. For Van Wert County residents, there are additional grant opportunities funding Vantage Adult Education Welding, CDL, STNA, Phlebotomy, and EMT courses through a partnership with the Van Wert County Foundation.
