ROCK HILL, SC  York Technical College is hosting an express admission event for students looking for a fast track to careers in carpentry or plumbing on Wednesday February 12 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the Building Construction Trades Training Facility.  

 This event gives students interested in York Tech’s 12-week fast track training programs a one-stop registration opportunity. Here, students will be able to receive:

  • Express admission

  • On-site placement testing

  • Financial aid assistance

“Some students may not be able to commit two years to a degree or one year to a diploma. With these 12-week programs, we are able to get students the skills they need where they can go out and get a career in a very short amount of time,” Associate Vice President of Industrial Engineering and Technology Sid Valentine said.

This event will assist students with checking everything off on the list when it comes to enrollment. Classes are forming now, and limited spots are available for these programs. Students are encouraged to register for the event HERE as soon as possible. 

Fast Track Programs 

The carpentry and plumbing fast track programs are not only being offered to assist students with their career goals, but to also meet the demand for highly skilled workers. These programs are designed to give students the necessary hands-on training while also preparing them for lifelong learning of emerging technologies.

Normally offered as 16-week tracks, the carpentry and plumbing programs have been accelerated to allow students to get a jumpstart on their careers. The classes are packaged to meet the needs of high school graduates, working professionals, or those in career transition. In addition, the classes are cohort based, in which a group of students stay together until the completion of the program. These formats add a level of convenience as well as a comfortable learning environment.
