Gateway provides valuable and rapid job training and education, preparing participants for entry-level employment in as little as 4-8 weeks. Training schedules differ every year in response to fluctuations in the regional job market. Each training provides entry to a career that will lead to upward mobility and increased wages.

Gateway courses involve a mix of hands-on and lecture-style instruction. Their instruction directly translates to the tasks and skills graduates will be asked to perform on a daily basis when they are hired. The students will spend forty hours per week in class, with the same punctuality and etiquette expectations of a regular job.

Participants will also learn soft skills like preparing a resume, acing a job interview, communicating professionally with colleagues, planning for their career, and working in a team. With leadership from industry partners, every course includes training that is directly connected to what Central Texas employers are seeking in their employees.

The following is a list of Eligibility Requirements to attend the Gateway program:

  • At least 16 years or older;
  • Proof of Right to work in the United States;
