Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, LWTech is offering a combination of online and on-campus classes for Summer and Fall quarters. I-BEST wants you to have the most up-to-date information. Please check each course/program page below to view class offerings, course schedules, and additional information about how the class will be taught (on campus, online, Zoom, etc). I-BEST Advisors are here to help. Contact us to schedule an appointment and we will answer your questions.
Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (I-BEST) classes at Lake Washington Institute of Technology have TWO instructors in ONE classroom. One instructor is Professional-Technical or General Education faculty and the other instructor is Adult Basic Education (ABE) or English Language Learning (ELL) faculty. As a result, I-BEST students receive more attention and assistance in their classes. With more academic support, I-BEST classes increase student success, so students can start certificates earlier, complete degrees faster, and gain the education they need to pursue their chosen careers!
Academic I-BEST provides support for students in completing many of their General Education requirements. General Education Requirements must be completed by all LWTech students to earn a Certificate of Proficiency or Associate degree. In addition, many General Education Requirements are pre-requisites to start programs such as Dental Hygiene, Pre-Nursing, Applied Design, Engineering/Biology Transfer degrees, Computing and Software Development, and many more.
Whether you want to upgrade your skills with a short certificate or complete an Associate degree at LWTech, I-BEST certificates can assist you in meeting your goals. I-BEST students in certificate programs benefit from added support at the beginning of their college journey and gain the confidence they need to enter the workforce and/or continue their education.
