Continuing Education & Workforce Development

Our mission is to provide programs that incorporate current and new technical courses; training partnerships with business and industry; and other opportunities for individuals to acquire and upgrade skills or seek personal enrichment.

We provide a variety of programs that allow our students to further or begin new careers in a number of fields including health care, professional services, industrial arts and more. In addition to career training, we offer Alvin and the surrounding communities the opportunity to be life-long learners in our personal enrichment and senior programs.

What is the difference between CEWD and credit?

CEWD classes give you fast track options and hands on training students need to obtain skills in the work place. A college application, transcripts or college entrance exams are not required to enroll in  CEWD  programs.  Students  may  only  take  classes  specific  to  the  trade  you  are  registering  for.  Unlike  credit  classes,  CEWD  courses  are  non-transferrable  from  one  college  to  another.  Upon  completion  of  a  CEWD  program,  students  will  earn  a  Certificate  of  Completion  or  a  state  certification.  Credit  programs  are  geared  for  a  two  year  degree  or  transfer  of  credit  to  another  college or university.  More information about credit vs. non-credit can be found here.
