Pre-Employment Transition Services

Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS)

Kiamichi Tech, in collaboration with the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services, is making available Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) activities to students with disabilities.

The activities are introductory services and are intended to help students with a documented disability get an early start in identifying career interests to achieve community integration, independence, post-secondary education and/or competitive integrated employment.
