With the changing safety guidelines due to COVID-19, CET is working on getting onsite labs up and running. There is an online OSHA 10 lab course available in the meantime and we will contact our ET students as soon as onsite labs are available. The office is still closed and staff can be reached remotely via phone and email. Online classes are continuing as usual with applicable deadlines. Our Spanish program is currently unavailable for new enrollees as the program is being transferred from onsite to a live webinar format.
