Class offerings include specialized vocational courses during non-traditional hours, customized training for business and industry, and webinars and classes broadcast on the Idaho Education Network. Classes (including short-term workshops) are offered both on and off campus during afternoons, weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays. The purpose of open-enrollment classes is to offer training and/or retraining for persons who have already entered the labor market and who desire to achieve stability or advancement in gainful employment. Customized courses are offered to assist local industry with expansion of the workforce and upgrading and retraining of their current employees. Instruction may include laboratory, shop and related classroom instruction appropriate for the specific group being served.

Open enrollment offerings are announced each semester through the press, radio, and special bulletins. More than 500 courses ranging in length from one week to two years are offered and start at varying times throughout the year.

Customized courses are offered at the request of a specific business. Curriculum is designed to meet the need of employees and is offered either on campus or on site at the business. Classes can also be offered through distance learning classroom and via the Internet. Federal financial aid is not applicable to these courses.

Because of the constant demand for short-term courses, people are encouraged to register for classes as early as possible. Persons interested in enrolling in any of these ­offerings may contact WORKFORCE TRAINING. Federal financial aid is not applicable to this program.
