Job Training Open House

JAMESTOWN, N.C. — Guilford Technical Community College will host a Job Training Open House 5:30 p.m.–8 p.m. Tuesday, May 17 on the first floor of Medlin Campus Center on GTCC’s Jamestown Campus, 601 E. Main St., Jamestown.

Hosted by GTCC’s Continuing Education division, the free open house will feature more than 20 programs that can be completed in less than 12 weeks. Some of those programs include: aviation and manufacturing, computer integrated machining, nursing assistant, EMT, Firefighter Academy, personal fitness certification, notary public workshops, wedding and event planning, cake decorating and computers for job seekers.

Through GTCC’s noncredit division, students can prepare for licensure exams and earn industry-recognized credentials in a variety of fields. Short-term training is focused on skill competencies that improve employability. In a few weeks or months, students are armed with a certificate and prepared to enter a new career. Some programs in the division also offer curriculum credit that can be applied to an associate degree if a student wishes to take their education further.

Need a high school diploma? GTCC offers multiple options including the General Education Development (GED®) test and the new High School Equivalency Test (HiSET®). Students also have the option of obtaining a high school diploma through traditional classroom instruction by completing GTCC’s Adult High School Diploma program.

During the open house, prospective students will have an opportunity to meet faculty and staff and learn more about program offerings. The open house will feature demonstrations from the Fire Academy and blood pressure checks by nursing assistant students. In addition, a drawing for full tuition Continuing Education scholarships will be held.
