Training that gets you started

Alabama Career Essentials (ACE) is a FREE training course designed by the Alabama Community College System to provide Alabamians with relevant, cutting-edge, and industry-driven employability skills training to better prepare individuals for the Alabama workforce. The main goal of the new ACE course is to ensure current and future workers are equipped with the skills necessary to enter the 21st-century Alabama workforce.

What participants can gain:

Employers trust our colleges’ credentials. These are the credentials ACE participants gain after completing the program:

  • ACT’s National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC)
  • Alabama Certified Employee Certificate (ACE)
  • One free college course (up to 4 credit hours)
  • Articulated credit for WKO 106 (3 credits) when enrolling in one of the state community colleges.

In addition to credentials, participants gain support, build confidence, improve their opportunities, and get access to ongoing skill upgrades and lifelong learning.

To qualify for RTW, students must have a high school diploma or GED  or be enrolled in SUSCC Adult Education and pursuing a GED. The student must also score a minimum level "M" on the math and reading portions of the TABE (Test for Adult Basic Education).
