Basic Skills Plus

The Basic Skills Plus program is for anyone interested in earning a CNA I or Welding Technology certificate while obtaining a High School Equivalency (HSE) or Adult High School (AHS) Diploma. This program was developed to provide employability skills, job-specific occupational and technical skills, and developmental education instruction to students concurrently enrolled in a community college course leading to a high school diploma or equivalent certificate.

Students must be enrolled in a HSE/AHS program first and then register for the Basic Skills Plus Pathway. All students must be NC residents and have a 9th grade reading level.

Tuition is free; students may be eligible for other scholarships or grants that will cover textbook and supply costs.
