It’s no secret that those who earn a postsecondary credential are in demand, earn more and suffer less unemployment. But, many people may not realize a four-year degree is not necessary to build the skills needed for a high paying job. SKYCTC offers programs that can be completed in four months or less.  

“There are many people who are unemployed or stuck in low-wage jobs that think they don’t have the time or money to get training,” said SKYCTC President Dr. Phillip Neal. “But they can improve their family’s lives and work toward achieving their dreams in a very short time, and there are many ways to pay for college.”
