Frequently Asked Questions

How do I set up a customized training plan for my employees?

Call the Training Office. We will work with you to assess your needs and set up a plan that will meet your needs and fit your budget.

Do I get college credits for these classes?

No. These classes are intended for those who want to update or advance their skills. Depending on the scope of the class, you will receive either a certification or certificate of completion.

What do I do if I want to train for a new career?

This depends upon the career you want to attain. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, only about 20% of today’s jobs actually require a college degree. Specialized career training accounts for the vast majority of the remaining jobs. Contact the Training Office so we can discuss your personal career goals.

Where are your facilities?

The main Training Office is located at the Main Campus of EIT in the Millcreek Mall in Erie. Specialized training classrooms, labs, and clinics are located at each of our career training schools in Erie. On-site training is as close as your facility.
