Learn About the Jobs Affected by COVID-19

As a pandemic, COVID-19 affects so much more than our global health. It disrupts our daily routines and impacts innumerable industries and businesses.

Is your job currently affected by the COVID-19 outbreak here in:

Career Quest Learning Centers want to help you overcome the professional and personal obstacles caused by the virus. 

COVID-19 Affects More Industries Than You Might Realize

It’s obvious to anyone that the healthcare industry has been greatly impacted by the pandemic. Doctors, nurses, and medical assistants across the globe are working tirelessly to improve the health of their communities.

As life goes on around us, many other businesses and industries are struggling too. Bars, restaurants, retail stores, gyms, and many other small, independently owned businesses are impacted.

Have you lost business or working hours?

Are you a server, bartender, retail worker, or employee at any other small business? Due to people staying home, you may have lost hours or shifts—perhaps even your job altogether.

Do you think it’s time to make a change for the better?

Our Dislocated Worker Discount Aids You in Challenging Times

Right now, you’re at a crossroads. You can stay in your current job despite the instability or search for another job that is equally unstable. However, there’s a third option: switching to a stable career.

We offer comprehensive career training in a number of in-demand fields, all of which can be completed in anywhere from 8 to 15 months. Our curriculum is built for working adults with busy schedules as well as dislocated workers who may need a bit of assistance.

Career Quest proudly offers a 15% tuition discount to qualifying students. If you’ve been laid off or are a displaced stay-at-home parent, we want to help. Get in touch with our team to learn more about eligibility for our dislocated worker discount or for any other forms of financial aid we offer.

Career Quest Makes Your Health & Safety a Top Priority

How do classes operate during the COVID-19 outbreak? While we have a heightened commitment to cleanliness and upholding CDC recommendations, we’re taking additional precautions to keep students and staff safe.

  • We offer fully virtual instruction. While we’re normally a commuter school, we’ve switched to full virtual instruction over the course of the outbreak.
  • Our classes are small. With 25 students or less, you can still get the personalized attention you need even while learning virtually.
  • We always offer blended learning options. Even when not affected by a pandemic, all programs—except for HVAC-R and Child Care—offer blended learning with online education options.

What Programs Do We Offer?

If you’re ready to move out of retail, food service, manufacturing, or any other industry impacted by COVID-19, we have plenty of options within our course catalog.

Not all programs offered at all campuses.
