Wed Aug 7, 2019

Registration is currently ongoing for a new session of Brazosport College’s popular Jumpstart program. The program is currently registering for its pipefitting and electrical programs.

For those who qualify, Jumpstart can provide the job training needed to enter a high-demand, high-wage career. Even better, the program is free.

Jumpstart is a nine-week program that is conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Friday. The program focuses on intensive, hands-on training that is designed to help one enter a new career in a short amount of time.

The new training sessions for pipefitters and electricians begin Sept. 16 and runs through Nov. 19. Orientation is scheduled for Sept. 12. All course expenses, including tuition, books, tools and lab materials, may be covered.

Seats in this program are limited. Being a grant-based program, certain criteria must be met in order to qualify for tuition assistance in the program.

Successful completers will earn nine college credits, an Occupational Skills Award from Brazosport College, a NCCER Core Curriculum Certification and Blue Card, and a NCCER Level 1 Craft Helper Certification. A job fair will also be conducted at the conclusion of the program.

Brazosport College is also offering office administration job training through its Jumpstart program, but classes for the Fall 2019 semester are full.
