Job Skills/Workforce Preparation
Are you looking for a job? Have you always wanted to work at a school? Riverside Adult School is starting a Job Skills course on February 20th! Students who are successful in this course will be eligible for placement as a Riverside Unified substitute employee as a Custodian or Food Service Worker! All fees for the pre employment screenings are grant funded and of no charge to the student. Food handlers certification, physical, drug/background screening - all paid for! If the cost associated with becoming a substitute employee has held you back from applying then this is a great way to overcome that!

This course is designed to prepare adult students for substitute employment with the Riverside Unified School District. Upon successful completion of this 4 week class students will gain the job skills and certifications necessary to join the RUSD substitute pool in food service and/or custodial services. Students will complete an Edjoin application, learn how to be a quakity employee, complete a background/fingerprint check, physical, drug screening and required certifications for substitute employment in RUSD. Students who are not successful with the RUSD screening process may take the skills and certifications earned to gain employment elsewhere.
