The Advanced Career Training (ACT) program gives students the opportunity to receive advanced education/technical training. Students in the ACT program may attend one of the participating City University of New York (CUNY) schools.
ACT students may also participate in other Job Corps center programs such as A+/Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification at Edison Job Corps [HYPERLINK TO http://edison.jobcorps.gov/home.aspx] in New Jersey, Advanced Computer Technology at Shriver Job Corps [HYPERLINK TO http://edison.jobcorps.gov/home.aspx] in Massachusetts, and Advanced Pastry Training at New Haven Job Corps [HYPERLINK TO http://newhaven.jobcorps.gov/home.aspx] in Connecticut.
