Ready to Work is one of several of Alabama’s community college free training programs that prepares adults with the skills they need to get hired. The focus of RTW is to make sure future workers have the basic, entry-level skills they need to succeed in working at most of Alabama’s businesses and industries.
RTW participants take classes within six self-paced modules with an assessment for each module. We provide a participant guide inside each lesson that helps you prepare for the lesson.
