With our Union Partnerships, we offer continuing education opportunities to skill trade unions where you can earn certificates, associate degrees, and transferable credits towards bachelor degrees. Your valuable apprenticeship and career experience can earn you college credits toward these programs. Classes are available on campus and online.
