Business Occupational Training
Business Occupational Training prepares individuals for full-time, unsubsidized employment and provides students with specific skills to increase their employability. Many of the programs can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis, but classes are offered during daytime only.
Interested students will be required to verify previous college coursework completed with an average of "C+" or above, or take a reading assessment test. Select programs require submission of PA Criminal History Report Information, a completed physical form and/or proof of valid health insurance.
Funding for these training programs may be available to individuals meeting the requirements established by the Berks County Employment and Training Office, the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation or through Berks County CareerLink.
Additionally, prospective students may apply for financial aid.
