KLAMATH FALLS – Klamath Community College is offering several end-of-summer training opportunities for community members considering a new career or skilling up in their current jobs.
The training and educational opportunities are focusing on fields such as agriculture, healthcare, and welding.
“KCC is committed to providing training and education that leads to local jobs and improved employment opportunities,” said Charles “Chip” Massie, KCC director of workforce development. “We are particularly excited to be working with so many organizations for the agricultural sector trainings. Agriculture is an important part of the local economy and helping prepare people for careers in the ag industry supports local needs.”
The four-day tractor safety Ag Work Skills training starts Aug. 22. This course prepares students to take the Department of Labor national exam for tractor safety and covers farm tractor operation rules and regulations, basic tasks associated with tractor operations, and responsible use of tractors and implements. Students will also maneuver a tractor through an obstacle course on the KCC campus.
In September KCC is offering a new dental assisting training that will prepare candidates for the national board exam. This 13-week course is a hybrid online/classroom course that provides flexibility for students to extern in local dental offices.
Also in September, KCC fires up its welding program, which offers a variety of training and certificate courses to help students prepare for a new career or to sharpen skills for an existing job.
