    Fremont Adult and Continuing Education is excited to be able to offer our students both in-person and online classes beginning in September 2021.  We have missed seeing our students in person and have gone to great lengths to ensure that our school is clean and safe as we welcome them back.   Our courses are better than ever with teachers who have gained valuable experience teaching online during the past year, implementing a variety of new teaching strategies and learning opportunities for students. 

    If you are interested in improving your skills to begin a new career or to advance in the field you are already in, join our engineering pathway.  We have a brand new computer lab with AutoCAD and an instructor who has years of experience working with a variety of drafting software programs.  We will train you and provide ongoing support so that you can take and pass the Autodesk Certified User Exam for AutoCAD, as well as prepare you for practical uses of the software.  This pathway, inclusive of two classes, a year of ongoing lab access after the course is completed, and free college and/or career counseling, is available for only $250 (textbook not included) per student.  Ohlone College is also partnering with us to provide two additional engineering courses for students to learn Advanced AutoCAD and Introduction to SolidWorks.  These non-credit courses are free of charge.  There are hundreds of designer/drafter jobs currently in the greater Bay Area in a variety of industries.  Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn high-demand skills that will catapult you into a great career!

    We also offer an excellent class that will prepare you to pass the Quickbooks Certified User exam.  This course is also available for only $250 (textbook not included).  This class is very popular, so sign up now to guarantee your spot.

    We are also very excited to be able to offer our BankWork$ Program, an 8-week training for careers in the banking industry, free of charge.  We offer four cohorts per year here at FACE, and assist all graduates with resume building, job placement, and ongoing support for up to one year after graduation.  We are also partnering with Oakland Adult and Career Education to offer a second cohort in Oakland.  Our bank partners attend a graduation and hiring fair at the end of each 8-week session, and our graduates are hired within a few weeks. 

    Join us today for these exciting opportunities!   Call us at (510) 793-6465 or go to www.face.edu for more information!  We look forward to helping you start your new career!
