Business and Technology Are Focus of MCCC’s Continuing Studies Offerings this Fall
Explore Your Options at Open House
Sept. 10


West Windsor, N.J. – This fall, Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) offers a wide array of certificate programs in business and technology designed to enhance and reboot careers. 

And, thanks to a program funded through the U.S. Department of Labor and the N.J. Department of Labor and Workforce Development, New Jersey residents who are unemployed or under employed for six months or more may be eligible for a New Jersey Ready to Work grant to cover their education costs.

Among the CCS programs that qualify for Ready to Work grants are Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, and Project Management Professional Prep and Review.  A number of programs in healthcare, information technology and advanced manufacturing may also qualify for state funding.  (Preference is given to military veterans.  Grantees must be able to document that they have job offers contingent upon their successful completion of training.)  To learn more about this program, call CCS at 609-570-3311 or visit the state’s website at www.rtwnj.org.

"Introduction to Automation/Programmable Logic
Controllers (PLC)," to be offered Nov. 7 to Jan. 16,
is among the Center for Continuing Studies'
technology courses this fall.

All options will be explored during a CCS Open House on Thursday, Sept. 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Center at Mercer, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor.  Registration for this free event is requested by calling 609-570-3311.  (All registrants will be entered into a drawing to win a free personal interest class valued up to $100.)

According to Dr. Lynn Coopersmith, MCCC Dean for Organizational Development and Community Programs, CCS bases much of its programming on in-demand career fields. “The CCS staff maintains an active dialogue with area employers, so we have an understanding of what they are looking for.  In a matter of months, job seekers can get the training that is sought by major employers in New Jersey,” she said.

CCS will offer a series of new classes this fall to help job applicants stand out during the interview and hiring process.  Courses include: “How to Get from Here to There” Sept. 17- Oct. 1 (three sessions); “Crafting Your Public Image” Oct. 6-22 (six sessions); “Resume Writing and the Tools You Need to Make an Impact” Nov. 12-Dec. 10 (four sessions); and “Improving Your Networking Skills” Dec. 8.

In addition to classes held on MCCC’s West Windsor campus, hundreds of courses are offered online and begin each month.  Early registration for all classes is encouraged for the best selection and avoidance of late fees.  Participants may register by calling 609-570-3311, online at www.mccc.edu/ccs, or by emailing ComEd@mccc.edu.
