How to Become an Approved Basic Skills Training Vendor
Basic Skills Training-Are courses or programs that will generally equip customers with the ability and understanding necessary to enter the workforce and be an active participant in work across a variety of occupations. We've organized basic skills courses and programs into three different categories -those that teach computer skills, those teach adult basic education (literacy, remedial education and GED preparation), and those that teach job readiness skills.
