To help close the gap between worker skills and employer demand, Bucks County Community College is offering a seven-week office technology training program for unemployed or underemployed people beginning Oct. 28.
The Microsoft Office Technology and Customer Service Specialist course – or MOTCSS – is ideal for individuals who are comfortable working with computers and looking to start a new career in office administration or customer service. Efforts will be made to connect those who successfully complete the program with local employers.
The workforce training program is supported by a $1.7 million federal grant awarded to the Bucks County Workforce Development Board. The program aims to assist dislocated workers in gaining the skills necessary to change careers. Training is free to those who qualify through PACareerLink. Those who don’t qualify for free training may enroll by paying tuition.
Interested applicants will undergo a brief interview to determine if they are suitable for the program.
