The UNT WISE Virtual Pre-ETS Training assists young adults with disabilities, ages 14-22, to develop vocational skills, independent living skills, and social & recreation skills through an intensive virtual training program. The Virtual Pre-ETS Training is a six (6) week program for participants interested in vocational planning and/or post-secondary education for their future. This program opens the door to the realities of the adult world of work and living.
