We're helping businesses by helping students.

Through our certification fee coverage program, BHS students who have completed courses in certain workforce development courses have the fees associated with testing for and obtaining certification paid by BCEF.

Our financial assistance helps the students (who often cannot afford the testing fees) achieve official status in their area of study and helps area businesses by providing them with verification of students’ skills from day one of employment.

Areas of study have included:  Manufacturing, Health Care, Information Technology, and Project Lead the Way Autodesk Computer-Aided Design. To date, BCEF has donated more than $25,000 toward this program.
