I have been involved with JobTrain for several years. The compassion, community involvement and service to their clients is so inspiring and makes a huge difference in peoples' lives. It's an amazing place to be a part of and support.
This opportunity came to me when I needed it the most. I had worked for 18 years in corporate with nothing to show for it, I was struggling & couldn't provide for my two children as a single mother. I lost our home and had to move around with friends and family. During a housing meeting my counselor mentioned Jobtrain and handed me the flyer. The first class that popped out to me was Project Build - Carpentry class and I called the next day to sign up. I've always enjoyed working with my hands and had no intentions of going back to the office life as I needed a solid career with no limits/there is always room to grow in the trades industry! After 17 weeks we received 6 certifications that will take us farther in our career, we've earned a new valuable skillset, we've built lifelong friendships and have the opportunity that we didn't have a few months ago. I will forever be grateful for Jobtrain and for providing the support I needed to get on a better life path. This is a great organization and I hope to see it going strong in another 50 years!
JobTrain is a proven leader in helping those most in need to succeed! They pride themselves on making sure that those who come through their doors have every reason to succeed and no excuses to fail. To accomplish this, they provide not ONLY job training, but assessment, essential life skills, counseling, high quality career placement services and much, much more!
A friendly, knowledgeable and caring staff round out a diverse offering of programs and services. If you or anyone you know needs job training or placement services, you owe it to yourself to give JobTrain a visit!
JobTrain is an invaluable resource for those who often find themselves with few or no resources to speak of throughout the Bay Area. JobTrain is not just a vocational training facility (although it does that remarkably well!) - it also works hard to help people every step of their way on personal and professional journeys. From childcare, to procuring a professional wardrobe, to obtaining other critical resources, JobTrain is a "one-stop shopping center" for success where the only currency you need is the desire to improve your life!
JobTrain does a great job training students for new careers. I use the catering team exclusively for my Board of Directors meetings. I am sure many of the students have not been exposed to catering events, cooking for big groups, working with chefs, creating menus, etc., but I have to say you would not know it unless you are the one hiring them. The folks from the culinary school are very good. The food is delicious and the presentation colorful and inviting. They are on time and always professional. Because it is a teaching catering team, I give them feedback and JobTrain is always very thankful for the suggestions.
JobTrain provides an invaluable service to the community, and their catering program provides amazing meals for business meetings. Delivery, presentation, and quality are outstanding.
Job Train is a great School with Great Teachers and trainers., I learned so much from Job train.
Upon my completion Job train kept in touch with me, referring me to Job opportunities and places where I could advance my education and training from Job Train Inc.
Thanks to Job Train I was able to secure a great job at Stanford children's Hospital.
I want to thank all Teachers and Staff at Job Train for all that they did for me while I attended the school.
I am now an CNA and working full time at Stanford Children Hospital
I highly recommend Job train to anyone seeking better and new opportunities.
JobTrain has been God sent! I gained so much knowledge while attending and being a part of the Professional Healthcare Worker Program. It has helped me to come one step closer to pursuing my dreams as a Registered Nurse. The instructor Xavier was phenomenal, and the staff there is so accommodating. I could not have asked for a better experience. I have recommended JobTrain to anyone and everyone I've come into contact with who needs help starting their career. It's good to know that there are still institutions out there who want and are willing to do as much as they can to see their students SUCCEED. I'm extremely proud to be a part of the JobTrain alumni.
my name is leticia i went to job train for my cna certificate and i appreciate every little thing job train has done for me and for the people who attend its a blessing to have them they are awesome i have a great job after graduating thanks to them and to myself as well for all the hard studying to accomplish a dream
I was jobless and homeless. I had a vision but did not know how to go about it. Jobtrain trained me for free and gave me hope. In Jobtrain, I learnt the importance of increasing my value always through training. Today I live with my family my rented apartment, I am an account Manager with healthcare Services Group and I am an ARF administrator by training, soon I will be licensed and hopefully work towards managing my own Facility. I am glad Jobtrain came to my rescue. Wesley Omoregie

Before sending their students off they make sure they are ready for the workforce, they truly care for them.
Jobtrain has allowed me to find my true passion, for the last four months, I've been taking classes at Jobtrain, and it is not the regular classroom environment, it feels more like home, and the people at JT make you feel like you are part of a family. In a couple weeks I'll be embarking myself in a new journey, and I'm confident that I'll succeed because JT has prepared me really well to take on any new challenge.
I came to Jobtrain to learn about construction and I ended up learning much more than I have planned to. I took the Project Build class and Marty mandibles was my teacher and he was amazing through out the 17 week class, in all the experience was really Good and Im very grateful to have been lucky enough to find Jobtrain, I could go on but I'll leave it short and sweet. You can't go wrong coming here!!!
jobtrain is great and provides people with low incomes to get the skills they need to get a job. Everything is great about this organization and i cannot say enough good things. Even the food truck that comes by is reasonably priced!
I first heard of JobTrain through my mom. I signed up for the Web Development bootcamp. JobTrain has by far exceeded my expectations in their dedication to making sure you become successful. Even our instructor Jessica Parsons has over 10 years of experience and is an excellent instructor. Overall, JobTrain is great and I would recommend this organization to everyone who is interested in bettering their life.
