The Georgetown Campus of South Seattle College is Washington State’s largest apprenticeship training institution. Serving over 2,700 apprentices and students earning everything from short-term certificates and industry-recognized credentials to Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees, the Georgetown campus is known as the area’s premier workforce education and training center.
With classes on evenings and weekends, and new courses starting throughout the quarter, the campus serves adult learners by meeting their needs and fitting their schedules. Because of the hands-on nature of Georgetown, nearly all classes take place on site, drawing students to specialized workforce training that prepares people for the trades, including construction, manufacturing, and sustainable building science.
A winner of recent U.S. Department of Labor grant rounds in TAACCCT, AAI, and Tech Hire, Georgetown is well-positioned to deliver training and services to individuals experiencing long-term unemployment, those ready to transition into new careers, and local employers.
The Georgetown Campus trains more than 4,000 apprentices and journey-level workers annually in 20 different trades. Each of the training centers provides classroom and laboratory space with training equipment focused upon specific trade training needs.
The Seattle Colleges' Office Of Corporate & Customized Training is here to meet your organization's education and training needs. Corporate & Customized Training serves as a focal point for business, labor and community in support of economic development, educational opportunities, family wage jobs and global competitiveness across the region.
