HATHORNE ー Superintendent Heidi Riccio announces that registration for winter and spring classes in Essex Tech’s NightHawks Adult Education Program is now open
The courses, funded through the Baker-Polito Administration’s Career Technical Institute initiative, allows students to engage in industry training, credentialing, and job placement assistance. Courses begin in January.
“Our MassHire North Shore Career Center is an integral partner in the CTI Programs, and through this collaboration, we have substantially increased our employer engagement, often resulting in multiple job offers for our NightHawks students,” said Bonnie Carr, Director of Workforce Development at Essex Tech.
Through the NightHawks program, adult learners develop proficiency and complete certifications that set them apart from other job candidates.
“Our economy is developing jobs at a tremendous rate, particularly in our priority and critical industries of manufacturing, healthcare, IT, construction, financial services and education. Many members of our labor force require training to take advantage of these tremendous career opportunities. Essex Tech’s programs reflect the skills needed by these industries,” said Mary Sarris, Executive Director of the MassHire North Shore Workforce Board. “We urge anyone interested in entering a career that will provide high wages to take advantage of this training, helping support yourself and your family and contributing to a stronger North Shore economy!”
Course offerings include auto collision repair, construction labor, culinary arts, HVAC, soldering and electronic mechanical assembly, and welding. Applicants will be scheduled, via email, for an in-person interview at Essex Tech to determine program eligibility.
