Tech to train baby boomers for new careers

February 22, 2013

Displaced workers 50 years old and above have a chance to gain new skills—the result of a $15 thousand grant awarded to Tri-County Technical College. Tri-County was the only South Carolina technical college chosen in the latest round of grants for the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program. The program is a national effort to train 10 thousand baby boomers for new jobs in healthcare, education and social services. The college will assist in preparing displaced workers or those looking to retrain for a new career as a Certified Nurse Aide through the Corporate and Community Education Division. The percentage of tri-county residents 50 to 64 years old who are unemployed: 18% in Pickens County, 19% in Anderson County, and 22% in Oconee County. For more information about the Plus 50 grant at Tech, contact Janelle Hicks at 646-1724 or jhicks1@tctc.edu.
