Learn to Earn

NRC logo.Capital Community College is engaged in an exciting new initiative funded by the U. S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant program (TAACCCT). We are part of the Northeast Resiliency Consortium, a collaboration of seven east coast colleges – Atlantic Cape (NJ), Bunker Hill (MA), Capital (CT) Housatonic (CT), Kingsborough (NY), LaGuardia (NY) and lead, Passaic County (NJ) Community Colleges – in partnership with Achieving the Dream and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

The Learn to Earn program is focused on training a highly skilled and resilient workforce of dislocated workers, veterans, underemployed and unemployed individuals to enter high-demand jobs in healthcare, information technology and environmental technologies occupations. Resiliency training is being embedded into our program curriculum and is also provided by our ability to have a Job Developer, Retention Specialist and Veteran Services Coordinator who can spend one-on-one time with students.
Our programs offer students:
  • New non-credit and credit curricula developed with local employer partners in response to specific industry needs
  • Innovative instructional methods and technologies integrated into the programs
  • New opportunities for students to receive credit for prior learning
  • Transition from non-credit to credit courses
  • College advisement and academic planning
  • Veteran services
