WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College, in partnership with the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) and the New Jersey Community College Consortium, is offering courses, free of charge, to large and small companies and non-profit organizations as part of a $1.88 million grant from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. This opportunity ends June 30, 2008.

Employees can receive basic skills training in English as a Second Language, communications (verbal and written) and basic math and measurement skills. There is no charge for taking these classes and minimal paperwork is required to register. However, employees who participate must be paid at their usual hourly rate during the training sessions.
