Tunxis Community College in Farmington will hold a Health Careers Open House on August 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the 700 Building hallway, adjacent to the Library. Refreshments will be served.

All are welcome to learn more about Tunxis healthcare career certificate programs, meet the instructors, and learn about payment options.

Tunxis Continuing Education & Workforce Development offers career training for professions such as certified nurse aide, registered medical assistant, phlebotomy technician, pharmacy technician, central sterile processing, veterinary assistant, certified medical administrative assistant, massage therapy and patient care technician.

Many of these programs are approved for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding through the Connecticut Department of Labor, and veterans benefits are available. Those receiving SNAP assistance may also be eligible for scholarships for many programs. For more information on SNAP scholarships, call 860.773.1454 or email [email protected]

Almost all Tunxis Healthcare Career certificates are eligible for college credit through the Connecticut Credit Assessment Program administered by Charter Oak State College. Credits may be used at Charter Oak or transferred to another college by setting up a credit registry.

During the event, participants can also learn about Tunxis credit programs, business & industry training, and continuing education courses such as photography, real estate, and motorcycle education.

Some Tunxis healthcare career certificate programs start as soon as late August and early fall. For more information on the open house and Continuing Education & Workforce Development programs, visit tunxis.edu/healthcareers, or call 860.773.1450. For an online map of campus, visit tunxis.edu/map.
