Union County College offers these to the employees of local businesses through a unique partnership of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA), the New Jersey Community College Consortium, and the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Through the grant-funded NJBIA Project, employees can be trained at one of Union County college’s campuses or on-site at a participating business facility. Training is available in the following areas: Computer Applications (Windows, Outlook, Excel, Word), Mathematics and Measurement, Communications (verbal, written and customer relations), and English as a Second Language.

Open enrollment classes are available at the Union County College Elizabeth, Plainfield and Cranford campuses. Companies may also arrange classes for their employees at a time and location for their convenience, either one of the college’s campus locations or at your business facility.

Although these classes are provided at no charge to the company, employers must pay their employees the customary hourly wage while in training. Companies are not required to provide a minimum number of employees for training, pay for class tuition, fill out complicated paperwork, or disclose financial statements. Consortium classes are also possible through professional, business or industry associations.
