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.
