Career Sampling Sessions

Throughout the year, prospective students have several opportunities to spend time observing the various jobs for which EGTI is providing training. During a Career Sampling Session, interested candidates will have two days to shadow a person on each job and opportunities to perform portions of the job. This will assist both EGTI staff and the individuals as they determine which training program is right for them. For more info go to http://www.erskinegreeninstitute.org/curriculum/career-sampling-sessions/
