Career Skills Academy

Career Skills Academy logo

Rockland Community College (RCC) recognizes the high demand to fill “middle skills” jobs – jobs that require more education than a high school diploma, but less than a college degree – in the Hudson Valley region. The Economic Mobility and Workforce Innovation Division was created to meet that demand. In addition, as the community’s College, we will continue to deepen our relationships with both industry and community partners to ensure economic mobility for our region through collaboration.

The courses and programs are designed to accommodate the needs of working professionals by offering flexible schedules, small class sizes and affordable tuition. The programs offered will assist students in securing jobs in fields with a typical starting salary of $40,000. Programs provide opportunities to obtain industry-specific certifications or transfer into degree-seeking programs, saving time and money. Class offerings, costs, program length and locations vary based on the program. There are scholarship and grant opportunities for those who qualify.

Through a wide range of comprehensive certificate programs including Healthcare, Amazon Certifications, CASAC Licensure, CDL, Barbershop Operator, and EMT, we are committed to providing salient career opportunities in a challenging job market. Register for your classes today!
