I-BEST Programs

If you are interested in job training but worried that your English language or basic reading and math skills might hold you back, Shoreline's I-BEST program could be for you.


How Does It Work? 

I-BEST (Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training program) has two instructors in the same classroom to teach technical and basic skills.  Students who need to improve their English language or brush up on math can get the help they need while studying in the career field of their choice.
