PITTSBORO — Interested in a healthcare career?

Come learn about training for the healthcare field at the 2010 Healthcare Career Fair sponsored by Central Carolina Community College’s Continuing Education Office in Chatham County. 

The event takes place 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, June 23, in the Multipurpose Room of Building 2 at the college’s Chatham County Campus, 764 West St. Admission and information is free.

The fair features careers for which training can be completed in a few weeks to a few months: nursing assistant I, EKG technician, phlebotomy technician, healthcare billing and coding technician, cardiac/ECG monitor technician, medical insurance for pharmacy technician, drug collection specialist, and sleep disorders technician.

Visitors will also learn about the Workplace Readiness for Health Careers program offered by the college’s Human Resources Development Office.

It provides valuable general information, such as the vocabulary of the healthcare field, job description, and daily activities of a healthcare professional. It also enables each healthcare student to earn a Career Readiness Certificate and prepare a résumé.
