Custom Adult Skills Training Available

by Press Release-CCC | Dec 10, 2007
Custom Adult Skills Training Available Camden County College is offering free adult basic skills training to employees of companies that belong to the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA) or chambers of commerce located in New Jersey.

CCC’s Division of Customized Training is providing classes in mathematics, reading/writing, English as a second language and computers at no direct cost to eligible firms or their employees. All participating workers must, however, be “on the clock” – that is, being paid their usual hourly wage or salary – while they are in class.

The courses are being offered free of charge through the grant-funded $1.88 million Basic Skills Workforce Training Program. This initiative was developed by the New Jersey Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development in partnership with the NJBIA and the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

The program was developed in response to needs expressed by employers throughout the state. Classes being offered by CCC include “Basic Math,” “Basic Communications,” “English as a Second Language” and “Introduction to Computers.” The mathematics, communication and English classes will each run for a total of 40 hours while the computer class will run for a total of eight hours.

Participating employers may choose to have CCC deliver this training on the jobsite or at one of the college’s campuses, which are located in Blackwood, Camden and Cherry Hill. Flexible scheduling is available.

The Basic Skills Workforce Training Program continues through June.

For details or to sign up, employers should contact Terri Campagna at (856) 874-6056 or or Carol McCormick at (856) 874-6016 or
