A video featured graduates and employer partners of three job training programs: Building Energy-Efficient Maintenance Skills program, Partnership for Automotive Career Education program and Careers in Banking and Finance Program.

AACA graduates who are placed in professional programs have a retention rate of 88 percent, meaning they stay with the employer or are promoted through the workforce.
