Santa Fe Community College in partnership with Santa Fe County and the Northern Area Local Workforce Development Board announces a series of free information sessions on March 14, March 26, March 27 and March 30 about the Professional Readiness for Technical Careers (PRO-TEC) program, which begins April 22 at the college.

 

PRO-TEC offers preparatory training for entry-level employment in a variety of industries and is designed for individuals who are currently unemployed, underemployed or looking to increase their hire-ability in Santa Fe County. Accepted participants will earn digital badges to verify their achievement (social media, IT, customer service and teamwork) through hands-on workshops and gain key job readiness skills in the 130 hour intensive training program starting on April 22. The classes are from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 22through May 7. After the May 8 graduation, participants will intern with Santa Fe County businesses for 100 hours May 9 through June 14. Training scholarships and stipends are available to qualifying participants.

 

All applicants must complete a Work Keys assessment before or when they apply for the program. To schedule your Work Keys assessment contact Ted Lech with New Mexico Workforce Solutions at

505-428-1748 or at thaddeus.lech@state.nm.us.

 

This is the fourth year for the program.  PRO-TEC has served more than 65 Santa Fe County residents with an average 80 percent post-program employment rate.

 

The public is invited to learn more about the PROTEC educational opportunity at four free Santa Fe information sessions:
