Are you looking for education and training that can help you get hired in one of Colorado’s top industries (IT, Healthcare, and Manufacturing)? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average number of jobs an individual will hold between 18 and 48 is eleven. Community College of Denver is eager to help in those pivotal points when those changes require some type of training and development to get that new job or start a new career through the WorkReady Program.
WorkReady is a program for individuals who have lost their jobs due to COVID-19. This program provides tuition assistance and student support from our WorkReady Student Success Coach. This helps each participant get affordable access to a college education and the support they need to start and finish a certificate so they can get the job they want within Colorado’s workforce. This program is supported by the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI). Program partners are Denver County Workforce and CCD Foundation.

Since we are a fully accredited college, the vast majority of our programs are financial-aid eligible, meaning you can apply for Pell grants and federal financial aid to help pay for your education. Scholarships are also available.
We do offer some special programs that are not financial aid eligible, for those, we’ve set up a scholarship fund to help you.
You can even earn college credit for prior learning you've acquired from work and life experiences, such as military service, volunteer or non-volunteer work experience, industry licensure or certifications, individual study, and reading.
For assistance with completing your financial aid application or for more information about scholarships, you can set up a virtual appointment with our Educational Opportunity Center, or by calling them at 303.352.TRiO (8746)
In addition to 15-week semesters, we also offer sessions that start throughout the semester. These Flex-Start classes allow you to begin at many points during the year, giving you the flexibility that you need.
