SANFORD - How would you like free tuition to pursue training in high-demand workforce training programs leading to a state or industry-recognized credential?

It's possible at Central Carolina Community College thanks to the Governor's Emergency Education Relief Scholarship.

"We are very excited about the opportunities these scholarships afford our residents," said CCCC President Dr. Lisa M. Chapman. "Our communities have some excellent employment possibilities and these scholarships aid in making CCCC career pathways that prepare our students for those jobs more accessible. We appreciate the Governor's support."

Available career pathways and certifications include BioWork, Cardiovascular Monitor Technician, Emergency Medical Technician, MIG Welding, NCCER Construction, Nurse Aide, Pharmacy Technician, and Phlebotomy. Many of these options offer students the opportunity to earn credit for prior learning toward future degree pathways.

"At Central Carolina, we aim to provide the right pathways and support necessary to help you achieve your dreams," said Dr. Brian S. Merritt, CCCC Vice President & Chief Academic Officer. "We are grateful to Gov. Roy Cooper and the State Board of Community Colleges for this special allocation that can fund the necessary costs and fees for these valuable training and certifications to help meet local workforce needs."
