Engineering and Healthcare Careers Headline MCCC’s Center for Continuing Studies Open House Sept. 8


West Windsor, N.J. – From healthcare to highway construction, Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Center for Continuing Studies (CCS) will be offering a variety of certificate courses aimed at creating new opportunities for practicing professionals.

CCS will host an Open House on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Center at Mercer, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, for individuals interested in exploring career development options in healthcare, high-tech fields, and many other areas. Those interested in attending this free event may register by calling (609) 570-3311.

New this fall are expanded offerings in civil engineering, ideal for professional development or for those looking for additional certifications. Classes include Pavement Design Basics, Pavement Rehabilitation Methods, and Pavement Preservation and Maintenance, as well as National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET) highway construction courses. CCS is one of only two test sites in New Jersey to offer NICET testing.


“Licensed designers and engineers have always been critical to any public works project, but it is becoming increasingly common for cities and governmental entities to demand even higher standards,” said Dr. Michael Edmondson, CCS director. “This has made additional certifications important, and we are pleased to respond to this demand with more offerings for the engineering professional.”

In addition to pavement design courses, CCS will also offer Construction Math, a 10-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration construction training course, and a Pervious Concrete Certification program in spring 2017.

CCS continues to offer numerous programs in the allied health field, including the Certified Nurse Aide and Certified Home Health Aide programs, offered on MCCC’s West Windsor Campus and the James Kerney Campus in Trenton.  Additionally, CCS offers a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding, a Pharmacy Technician Certification Prep Program and a NAVTA approved Veterinary Assistant Certificate Program.

These are just a few of the hundreds of professional and personal interest courses offered through CCS, including many online options that begin every month.
