Applicants will receive an email receipt after they submit the application with details about the next steps in the enrollment process.


Non-KHSD high school students must register for the class in person by meeting with a Career Tech at the ROC during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 7:00am to 3:30pm). Transcripts and immunization records are required to register. NOTE: School offices are currently closed due to the stay at home order. Any registration questions should be emailed to one of our Career Techs. Career Tech email info HERE.

Adult Registration: Adult students must register for the class in person by meeting with a Career Tech at the ROC during regular business hours (Monday through Friday 7:00am to 3:30pm). Adults may call and schedule an appointment, but walk-ins are also welcome. For adults to secure their spot in the course they will need to complete the registration paperwork and pay the course fee.
