Career Credentialing Programs
Our goal is to provide a clear path to a better and brighter future for people in our community. Palmetto Goodwill’s Career Credentialing Program is designed to help do that by offering intensive, fast-paced certification courses in fields such as Manufacturing, Welding, Hospitality, Culinary, Software / IT and CDL.
If you are unemployed, underemployed, or simply want to improve your current standing within one of these sectors, this program is for you. For people looking to kick-start their career, our Career Credentialing Program is a great option. Courses not only give participants a base level of competency, but the certificates achieved assure employers that an individual is capable of handling the challenges his or her job responsibilities present. Best of all, most of our certification courses are FREE! Contact us today to see if you qualify!
At the conclusion of each course Palmetto Goodwill employment specialists work with participants to take the next step on their career journey.
