Job Skills/RUSD Sub Preparation

This program is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As soon as we are able to have students back on campus at Riverside Adult School we will begin a new session of this program. Updates will be posted here when available.

Are you looking for a job? 

Have you always wanted to work at a school? 

Riverside Adult School's Job Skills course can help you! 

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!

Potential students must be over the age of 18 and no longer enrolled in high school. You do NOT need to have graduated from high school (but if you want to, we can help you with that too!). 

A reading and listening assessment is given at registration and students must score in the 9th grade or above range for reading and listening. This requirement is in place due to the level of reading required in the certification and district examination portion of the course. Students who score below the 9th grade level may re-test and attempt to register again for the next interval of Job Skills. 

Government issued identification and authorization to work in the U.S. is required to register. Click here to view the different ways you can prove identity and authorization to work.

There are physical ability requirements for the RUSD employment testing process. Please read about them below.

Students who have previously been removed from this program for lack of attendance, previously failed district employment screenings while in our program or removed for other reasons may not be eligible to re-enroll.

Classes will be held according to the following schedule:

Monday through Friday

8:30am to 10:30am OR

10:30am to 12:30pm OR 

Monday through Thursday 

5:00pm - 8:00pm


*students must pass the RUSD screening process for employment. Students who are not successful in the screening process will not be hired by RUSD but can take their certifications and skills learned in the class to obtain employment elsewhere.
