Fast Track Institute

Fast Track Institute

The fastest way to prepare for "in-demand" jobs!

The Institute provides fast-paced, intensive, job preparation programs for job seekers, mid-career professionals, recent high-school graduates and other community members looking for an opportunity to quickly jumpstart their career. Fast Track has two major focuses, entry level skills and professional certifications. Fast Track entry-level courses teach the job skills needed to quickly begin working in local businesses and industries where applicants with up-to-date training are in high demand.  

Most Fast Track courses take only a few months to complete, and result in participants completing a complement of skill competencies they can share with potential employers!


Fast Track courses are typically offered as intensive day and evening classes held at several Santa Clarita Valley locations, including the college’s training center at Aerospace Dynamics International, Inc., in Valencia and at both College of the Canyons campuses. If you are interested in attending Fast Track events, check out our Calendar for the next available class!

All of the Fast Track programs have been selected based on labor demand, and will be particularly focused on industries where future job growth is expected.

Fast Track courses are divided into four general industry areas: Manufacturing,  Medical/General Office, Managerial/Professional and Test Preparation Courses.

The managerial/professional track is specifically focused on the needs of mid-career professionals who either need to re-enter the labor market due to downsizing, or require additional training and certification in order to remain competitive in their current industries.

Fast Track courses are typically offered as intensive day and evening classes held at several Santa Clarita Valley locations, including the college’s training center at Aerospace Dynamics International, Inc., in Valencia and at both College of the Canyons campuses.
