FAQ

  • If I do not have a high school diploma, HiSET, or GED, do I qualify for the program?
    You still qualify for the program, but you must be making progress toward obtaining HiSET. Casper College’s Adult Learning Center can help with this.

  • If I have a criminal history, do I qualify for the program?
    This is dependent upon the specific occupation that you are interested in training for. ETSS will not train you in an occupation if there is no chance of you being successful in this occupation due to previous criminal convictions.

  • Do I have to be a single mom in order to qualify?
    Absolutely not. The requirements state that you must be a parenting adult, so rather you’re a mother or father, single or married, you meet this requirement.

  • I interviewed and was not accepted for the program. What do I do now?
    You will have the opportunity to interview for another program in the future if you remain in contact with the program advisor. The class may have been too full to accept you or you may need to address some obstacles prior to being accepted.
