Pre-employment training offered

Published 5:05 pm Saturday, March 10, 2012

BCCC’s Division of Continuing Education is offering a two-part class to assist people who desire to become more employable.

The first part of the class will cover basic computer skills to increase confidence and ability with technology. The second part of the class will make use of these new skills to help participants earn a Career Readiness Certification. A CRC is a nationally recognized credential that highlights several essential skills sought by employers. Instructor-guided preparation and on-line study will assist students in gaining this valuable certification. Local industries, like PCS Phosphate Aurora and PAS, now attach CRC training to their hiring processes.

This class will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., beginning March 20 and ending May 10. Students will meet at the Washington County Center for Human Services, 209 E. Main St., Plymouth.

The registration fee is $150 ($120 registration, $30 testing fee). However, this class is offered free to dislocated workers, workers who have been notified of impending layoffs and any others who qualify. Registration will be accepted at the first class meeting. To reserve a space in this class, contact Clay Carter, 940-6357 or
