The County College of Morris (CCM) has become one of six community colleges nationwide participating in the next New Models for Career Preparation program. The program, led by New America in partnership with the Lumina Foundation, is designed to provide methods and strategies for creating high-quality affordable “pre-degree programs” that prepare students for careers and meet workforce demands. The program aligns with the CCM Center for Workforce Development’s mission to create pathways and training programs that generate economic opportunities for Morris County residents.
CCM will receive a $50,000 grant to support the program’s development and support a study on workforce education and employer needs. The study will be used to determine how community colleges can further develop continuing education programs to meet workforce needs and create pathways for quality job opportunities.
Among the programs offered at CCM’s Center for Workforce development are:
- Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeships
- Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor
- Certified Nurse Aid Apprenticeships
- Data Analytics
- Medical Billing and Coding
- Pharmacy Technician Apprenticeships
- Project Management
