Career In A Year

Are you ready to get trained and into the workforce?

Going to college for four years – or even two – isn’t for everyone. We understand that. But everyone wants a good paycheck and a job they enjoy. At NIACC, we offer a variety of programs that you can complete in a year if you enroll full-time. That means you can get your education and training in a one-year program, which gets you out into the workforce, faster! We offer career counseling and job-seeking skills to help you make the transition to your new career. Check out the current one-year programs below:
