Currently, we’re accepting applications to our Boulder, Colorado location.

Once you’ve submitted an online application to DevPrep, we review it. Training spots are limited. Our initial decision on who moves forward in the process is based on level of need. The list is further refined through one or more of the following stages:
  • A telephone interview.
  • An online assessment.
  • An in-person written Test for Adult Basic Education for reading and math. (Candidates must score at the 10th-grade level or higher.)
  • An in-person interview.
Applicants can be dropped from consideration at any point during this process. Candidates who successfully move through all of these steps may be invited to join DevPrep.

All information must be completed.
