CTC meets training demands
Even with layoffs and rising unemployment across the nation, there are still job sectors with too few qualified applicants.
One such area is health care. That's the case just about everywhere, and certainly in Southeast Missouri. In response to this need, the Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center is adding three associate degree programs that will turn out workers trained as physical therapy assistants and occupational therapy assistants as well as those prepared for medical technology jobs.
This is another example of how career and technology centers serve the needs of local employers. If all goes according to plan, the additional training programs will start next year.
The associate degrees will be granted through a collaboration with Mineral Area Community College in Park Hills, Mo.
