Welcome to The GREAT Center

The GREAT Center offers courses in allied health, precision manufacturing, billing and bookkeeping, digital applications, leadership, real estate, hospitality, maintenance, safety, customer service, and solar technology. New programs are added continuously. Programs are non-credit but are typically tied to industry-recognized credentials and may be eligible for college credit or continuing education units (CEUs).

The GREAT Center actively supports the businesses, organizations, and job seekers in the greater New Haven area. Trainees in all areas need hands-on, real world experience. Contact The GREAT Center to find out about hosting an unpaid or paid internship, providing job shadowing opportunities, or arranging required classroom instruction for a Registered Apprenticeship. Please call (203) 285-2300 if you would like more information.
