FREMONT - Terra State Community College is hosting its second Plus 50 Career event on Dec. 4.
The focus of this event will be careers in the healthcare field, namely medical scribe/medical coding, health information technology, medical assisting, medical office administration, pharmacy technician training and State Tested Nurse Aide training.
"We will explain how to return to school, including the admissions process, campus resources and financial aid information," said Kathy Berger, who coordinates the program at Terra. "Participants will also be able to explore our labs and interact with a panel of local healthcare professionals."
Lab tours will begin at 5:30 p.m., the panel will begin at 6:15 and campus tours will begin about 6:30.
There is no charge for this event. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
"The Plus 50 program is for those 50 years of age and older, but of course you can attend even if you are younger than 50," Berger said. "This is good information for everyone who wants to improve their lives through education."
Terra State is one of 36 new colleges recently selected for the Plus 50 Encore project. Since 2008, AACC and its network of Plus 50 initiative colleges have worked with baby boomers and helped them prepare for new careers.
An independent evaluation of AACC's Plus 50 initiative found that 89 percent of students agreed that college workforce training helped them acquire new job skills, and 72 percent attributed landing a job to such training.
The Plus 50 Encore Completion Program supports AACC's work to increase the number of students who finish degrees, certificates and other credentials.
