Ready To Work Program

The Ready-to-Work Training Program (RTW) offered by Bishop State Community College provides a system of job readiness, basic computer skills, and Work Keys assessment and testing to adult job seekers and dislocated workers.  Employers have indicated their preference for people with well developed life skills and job readiness training as essential to  success in getting and keeping a job.

The RTW training program is available FREE OF CHARGE to all individuals that are unemployed and want to gain entry level skills or those individuals that are underemployed and want to gain additional skills for advancement.

Registration and orientation for the Ready-to-Work Training (RTW) program will be held each Monday at 9 a.m. (Room 209) in the Business Technology Center on the Main Campus of Bishop State Community College located at 351 N Broad Street. For additional information or questions, call Sheria Mitchell at (251) 405-7085 or send an e-mail to:

RTW graduates who pass a final comprehensive examination earn an “Alabama Certified Worker Certificate” and an “Alabama Career Readiness Certificate” confirming that your proven work skills and abilities meet the requirements set by the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education Division of Workforce Development in cooperation with the Alabama Industrial Development Training Institute (AIDT).

Placement in meaningful employment will be the ultimate measure of success for program participants.  In order to facilitate this, participants who complete the training will receive job placement assistance, (JOB PLACEMENT IS NOT GUARANTEED) including referrals to the Alabama Career (One-Stop) Centers in their local communities and, through them, to other service providers such as AIDT’s Job Training Programs.  For more information, visit the AIDT website.
