Beginning June 19, Gatlin will provide free access to its series of online training courses to qualifying participants at the YMCA’s AMAKA Early Childhood Learning Center in the Butler Housing Community, 1501 Stephenson Street in Fort Worth.

The material will be available to students from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday and Wednesday evenings until they complete their coursework. The computers utilized for the program were recently donated by TCU’s Office of Extended Education. Ranging in value from $1,295 to $1,595, Gatlin’s online courses cover a wide array of subjects including healthcare, business, Internet training and design.

“What we’re providing is a golden opportunity for people to better themselves at no cost, and that’s a chance you can’t get every day,” said YMCA Program Director Ronda Broxton. “You can learn how to be a webmaster, graphic designer, pharmacy technician or veterinary assistant with out having to pay the high cost of college tuition. All we ask is that you show a commitment to follow through with the program.”

The YMCA will supervise and administer the program, and TCU will issue completion certificates to participants. The class size is limited to eight students at a time, with spots opening as participants finish the training. The courses are self-paced, and take an average of 90 days to complete, though students are not given a timeframe to finish the training.

“We’re very excited to contribute our part to such a worthwhile community endeavor,” said Stephen Gatlin, founder of Gatlin Education Services. “YMCA and TCU are known for giving back to the community, and it’s something we value as well. When this program becomes a success, we intend to utilize our relationships with colleges and universities to offer similar opportunities in neighborhoods all over the country.”

TCU’s Office of Extended Education offers non-credit education and professional development for adults seeking to re-start a college career or simply enhance their education.

“TCU has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Gatlin Education Services, and given their service capabilities and YMCA’s reputation for outreach services, this is a natural fit,” said David Grebel, TCU’s director of Extended Education. “The partnership is in keeping with our goal of facilitating opportunities that advance the career prospects of adult learners.”

For qualification and registration information, interested applicants should contact Ronda Broxton at (817) 332-4434.

Established in 1989 by Stephen Gatlin, Gatlin Education Services is the largest provider of Web-based, instructor-supported training to colleges and universities. Gatlin open-enrollment programs are designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional caliber positions for many in-demand occupations.
