Welcome to The GREAT Center

The GREAT Center, Gateway Community College’s Resource, Education and Training Center, offers fast-paced training in high-growth occupations and builds customized programs to suit the scheduling, budget and professional development needs of local business.

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.

Thank you for your interest. Please call (203) 285-2300 or email Pam Walsh at PWalsh@gatewayct.edu if you would like more information.
