New Job-Focused Training Programs Starting Soon

Two new job-focused training programs are starting this winter at Quinebaug Valley Community College.

A day-long Security Officer Certification training will be held Tuesday, February 6. The state of Connecticut requires this training course in order to obtain certification as a security officer. The curriculum provided by LJB Security Training is approved by the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services & Public Protection and covers all aspects of the security industry, including state laws. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a CT Guard Card.

Personal Care Attendant (PCA) training is an intense two-week program beginning March 5. Personal care attendants, also known as personal care aides or personal care assistants, help people living with physical or mental disabilities perform day-to-day activities and lead normal lives. The program will provide students with the training necessary to gain employment as a personal care attendant.  The class meets Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
