Better Skills, Better Jobs, and Better Lives

At Green River College, we help create better skills, better jobs, and better lives in our diverse community every day by offering Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training.

I-BEST classes have two instructors in the classroom: one to teach the career content and one to support their academic skills development. With this collaborative effort, students are able to learn faster and go further.

The I-BEST program at Green River provides educational access and support to help students:

  • Develop job skills that prepare them to work in high-demand fields
  • Begin an educational and career pathway
  • Increase English and math skills
  • Work toward a certificate or degree


Green River offers I-BEST pathways in the following areas:

Business Technologies and Administrative Careers (BTAC)


Early Childhood Education
