Career Connection

Connecting Our Community with Loans for Career Training and Skilled Trade Certifications.

Technical skills are in high demand, but the financial pathway to certification can be difficult.

Technical certifications create a skilled workforce that  attracts new businesses and helps existing businesses to grow, giving low income workers a path to higher wage jobs. Traditional forms of financial aid and student loans cannot typically be used for certificate programs.

Commodore Perry is able to offer innovative and unique lending products not typically offered by  financial Institutions to help certify more skilled workers.
