We're bringing Vocation to Home Education.

Class Source & AmSkills

Class Source has partnered with AmSkills to bring vocational training to our homeschool community. In this pre-apprenticeship program, students will be trained to be Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technicians (CPT+ 4.0), earning other nationally recognized certifications along the way.

 

  • Completion of the full pre-apprenticeship program also counts as 15 college credits at any Florida college towards an A.S. degree in Engineering Technologies.

  • Each of these classes counts towards the required credits to qualify for the Florida Bright Futures Gold Seal Vocational Scholarship (GSV).

  • These classes, like all our classes, may be paid for with PEP/UA funds through Step Up for Students.

  • Adults are encouraged to take these vocational classes as well, however, for the safety of our other students, adults will be required to consent to a background check prior to attending class.
