With so many Utah workers furloughed or having lost their jobs, Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) is launching a new program to help.

Rick Bouillon, Associate Vice President, Workforce & Economic Development for SLCC joined us to explain.

Bouillon says, "In this time of need, we are continuing to tap every resource available to help our community members enhance their careers or start a new one. We have a tremendous team of faculty, industry trainers and staff who have designed the most effective courses and programs being requested today."

He says with funding SLCC secured through the CARES act, the college is offering 27 courses and programs to help community members enhance their careers or start a new one.

You can choose from several different categories including:

  • Healthcare
  • Business & Finance
  • Information & Technology
  • Professional development
  • Energy
  • Manufacturing & Advanced Materials
  • Technical Training
  • Transportation

The courses are for any Utah resident who was laid off or furloughed from their job due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The CARES act funding will cover tuition costs, which will offset the financial obligation for any qualified Utah resident who's looking to enhance skills immediately.

The classes start this week, and there are new classes beginning every week on Mondays.
