Division for Continuing Education and Workforce Development

Welcome to the Division for Continuing Education & Workforce Development

The Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development offers a wide range of programs to thousands of individuals each year.  We provide affordable quality career training, education, personal enrichment and community programs.  To fulfill our mission we utilize the following approach:
We provide career training and certificate programs for individuals entering the job market for the first time, seeking to change their professional field, or looking to advance in their current field.  Our programs prepare participants for in-demand careers in a variety of sectors, including healthcare, information technology, education, non-profits, real estate, finance, and recreation.
Our pre-college programs are designed to prepare individuals to successfully transition into college. We also provide basic education and literacy programs such as English as a Second Language (ESL) and preparation for the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam (formerly known as GED). 
We collaborate with businesses, employers, community organizations, and public and private funders to create programs and provide employment services.
We continually adapt our training programs to changes in the job market and help businesses, employers, and workers respond to changes or advancements in their fields.
We advocate on behalf of the community to support job creation and obtain resources to provide affordable job-training programs.
Our dedicated and multi-lingual staff works tireless to ensure our students receive high-quality instruction and achieve their personal and career goals.  We also create customized training programs that are tailored to the needs of our business, employer, and community partners.

Message from Dr. Carlos Molina, Vice President

The Division plays a prominent role in the mission of Hostos Community College, that is, to provide access to higher and postsecondary educational opportunities leading to intellectual growth and socio-economic mobility. The Division accomplishes this through the delivery of educational and job training services to individuals not served by the traditional instructional activities of the College.

I hope you will take some time to review the information we provide on the programs and meet the staff who develop and implement the varied activities that will help you prepare for college or engage you in postsecondary training that will provide you with the credentials to obtain employment in this fast moving and changing job market.

The faculty and staff who will work with you, not only have the credentials and expertise to provide you with the appropriate learning and skills development, but are also invested in your personal and professional success.

I wish you the best and welcome you to the Hostos Continuing Education & Workforce Development family.

Warm regards,
