  2. Classes and courses for immigrants eligible for services in citizenship and English as a Second Language, and workforce preparation classes in basic skills.
  3. Education programs for adults with disabilities
  4. Short-term career technical education with high employment potential; and

IVC will work with partners from within education and governmental agencies, and representatives of local community, business, and industry to develop adult education and training programs in response to current and emerging learning and workforce development needs.​
