Adult Fall Registration

Adult registration started July 1, 2019. We have several programs available to offer flexibility for adults looking to further their education. Programs we are still accepting students into are:

Electrical Technician (Tuesday-Thursday 5 pm to 10 pm)
Phlebotomy Technician (Monday-Thursday 6 pm to 9 pm, clinical times can vary)
Power Equipment Systems (Tuesday-Thursday 5 pm to 10 pm)
Truck Driving (Monday-Friday 7:15 am to 2:15 pm)
Welding (Tuesday-Thursday 5 pm to 10 pm)

Classes begin August 14, 2019. The first step to apply to any of the above programs is to take a free TABE (adult basic skills) test. You can schedule that test by calling 304-256-3964. Free tutoring is available if needed. We do accept financial aid so make sure you fill out a FAFSA for this school year and mark our school on your application. We also offer monthly interest free payment plans for amounts not covered by aid.

Due to a partnership with the WV Department of Education, ACT is able to reduce tuition for the Truck Driving program. Truck Driving accepts new students every 3 to 4 weeks. . The student will operate a variety of equipment both on our range and over the road. The cost of the 4-6 week program will now be $2,250. A D.O.T. physical is required to start this program.

If you have any questions please call our school at 304-256-4615.
