Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) has begun a short-term program for individuals who lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
LCTCS’ “Reboot Your Career” aims to re-train workers for high-wage, in-demand jobs in no more than 12 weeks.
The goal is to train at least 5,000 individuals in the 2021 fiscal year. Most programs have an 8-week time frame or less. Certification programs will focus on industries that place workers in high paying jobs and are part of a career path where additional certifications and education allow for advancement.
The certifications will focus on those skill sets most in need in their respective regions, such as industrial technology, health care, transportation and logistics, manufacturing and information technology.
Training costs are supplemented by federal CARES Act funding available now through spring 2021.
