Partnerships between adult education programs, Shasta College, and service providers such as SMART and the Tehama Job Training Center will ensure that you get all the information that you need to be successful. Whether it is a class or two or a complete degree or certificate, strong partnerships with local industry and employment services such as job searching, resume writing and internships will help you take that next step towards a possible and growing career in the north state.
