Community College of Vermont Gets $150,000 for Job-Training Program


posted at 2:36 pm Wed Feb 17th, 2010 by (WherezIt_Staff)

US Representative Peter Welch on Wednesday announced a $150,000 federal grant for an innovative job-training program offered by the Community College of Vermont.

Alongside recent graduates and teachers at CCV's Montpelier site, Welch touted the Career Readiness Certificate Program as an effective means of equipping Vermonters with vital entry-level skills, while also supporting Vermont employers in need of a quality workforce.

The federal appropriation Welch secured will help CCV increase the number of students it can serve through the program and expand it to sites around the state.

"In this difficult economy, Vermonters must be equipped with skills that make them competitive in today's workforce, and Vermont businesses require high-quality, well-trained employees to achieve their goals," Welch said. "This grant will help the Community College of Vermont match qualified workers with quality employers through its innovative Career Readiness Certificate Program."

In its first year of operation, the Career Readiness Certificate Program has served 138 Vermonters. The free, 10-week program includes instruction in mathematics, reading, computer skills, data analysis, project management and teamwork. Currently, the program is being offered at CCV's Barre/Montpelier, Upper Valley, St. Johnsbury and Brattleboro sites.
