How it Works

Our mission is to support women into careers that support economic security.

Through employment training and support services, we help women explore new careers that pay well and provide opportunity for advancement. The following information will give you an idea of how our process works.

1. Information sessions

We hold regular information sessions for each of our programs. This is a chance to learn about what a program is like and ask questions. We recommend that every applicant attend at least one. Find out about our upcoming information sessions here.

If you’re not sure which program you’re interested in yet, we recommend checking out Tools for Training which is a free 3-day workshop focused on career exploration, goal setting, and self-assessment. 

Tools for Training also introduces you to the concept of online and self-paced learning.  Find out about our upcoming workshops here.

2. Apply 

Once you’ve found the WBF program of your choice, you can learn about the admissions process here and start your application. 

3. Prepare and test your skills

As part of the application process, you’ll have to complete essential skills and fitness testing to make sure you’re ready to take on the challenges of your chosen program and career. 

4. Class selection

Once all tests and interviews are complete, the WBF team will review the applicants who have made it to this point.

Each class has a limited number of seats available, and selection is based on a consideration of all the application requirements, screening components and level of readiness.

If you are selected to participate in the program, congratulations! You must accept the offer to start the program.

If you’re not successful this time, don’t be afraid to talk to your admissions advisor about what you need to do to be considered for the next program or what other programs might be a fit for you.

Remember, we’re here to help you achieve your goals.

5. Attend training

Depending on the program, you’ll spend between 2 and 17 weeks building the skills you need to be job-ready. Learn more about our classes and instructors here.

6. Join the workforce 

In addition to your classroom and skills training, every WBF program gives you critical resumé and interview preparation skills. We also connect our graduates with employment opportunities after program completion. Read more about our alumni supports here.
