published Thursday, December 17, 2015

Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) and Carbon Career and Technical Institute (CCTI) have partnered to offer a nurse aide training program at the CCTI campus, 150 W. 13th Street in Jim Thorpe. This intensive, 150-hour program prepares students to take the PA State Certification exam and begin careers as nurse aides, positions in high demand by local nursing homes and other healthcare facilities. Classes are now forming for January 2016.

Through classroom and laboratory experiences, students will develop an understanding of the skills required and will have supervised clinical experience at a local long-term care facility, where they will provide supervised hands-on care and be evaluated before successfully completing the program. The program also provides healthcare career awareness and job readiness, placing individuals on a journey to a lucrative and fulfilling career and ensuring success on the job. With the help of LCCC’s PATH grant, students in this program will receive the additional support of a career coach and job developer to help them be successful in the program, develop a working resume and interview skills and receive job placement support.

Program orientations are held two times a month at CCTI. For more information or current dates, please contact Colleen at 610-799-1050 ext. 3118 or visit Career Training and Personal Interest.
