MCC’s Workforce and Economic Development Division will provide Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) training to Vicinia staff through a registered apprenticeship program through the Department of Labor (DOL).  The training will be customized so that Vicinia employees can continue to work while attending school. Upon successful completion of the training, participants will be eligible to sit for their state certification, while also receiving a certificate of apprenticeship completion from the DOL.

“I am very excited about the upcoming CNA program. It is an opportunity for Resident Aides to gain more knowledge that can help us become better care givers for our residents,” said Gabrielle Farren, current Vicinia employee.

“MCC is committed to empowering our community through training and development.  We’re excited about this new partnership; it provides an opportunity for employees to improve their knowledge base as well as for us to engage and provide a service for local employers.  It’s a win-win for us both,” said Robert Matthews, Associate Vice President of Workforce and Economic Development.
