High School Equivalency
HCC's Construction Skills & Technology program was designed to help students on their path to a career in construction, regardless of their current educational level. If you’re looking to obtain your High School Equivalency credential to move forward on this career path, we can help!
HCC offers the High School Equivalency credential at no cost to you with a direct entry into the Construction Skills & Technology program. Offered online or in-person, the High School Equivalency credential is a nationally recognized certificate with a focus on specific knowledge measures and soft skills.
This program was developed to support Haywood County's economy and its residents to give people the skills they need to thrive in our region's construction industry. Through a Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities (WORC) Initiative grant, HCC is able to provide scholarships to students entering the Construction Skills & Technology program to help offset tuition, course fees, and other expenses. We are here to help you on your new career journey.
HCC’s Construction Skills & Technology program is made possible by the Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities (WORC) Initiative, a partnership between the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC).
The purpose of the WORC Initiative is to fund grants that support economic mobility, address historic inequities for marginalized communities of color and other underserved and underrepresented communities, and produce high-quality employment outcomes for workers who live or work in economically challenged regions, enabling them to remain and thrive in these communities. The WORC Initiative is designed to address persistent economic distress by aligning community-led economic and workforce development strategies and activities to ensure long-term economic resilience and enable workers in the regions to succeed in current and future job opportunities.
