ROSELLE – As part of the Roselle First initiative to create employment opportunities for borough residents, Mayor Jamel Holley and the Roselle Borough Council announced the formation of the Roselle First Security Certification program.
Through a partnership with the Union County Workforce Investment Board and Frontline Academy, Roselle residents can participate in a comprehensive four-week training and certification program in the security and customer service fields.
Those participating in the program will earn the Security Officer Registration Act certification (SORA), allowing them to work as certified security officers in New Jersey. This is the ideal time to undergo training, as companies are eager to find trained security officers for the holiday season, officials said.
“This program is just one cog in the Roselle First machine,” Holley said. “It’s an incredible opportunity that we are proud to offer Roselle residents as part of our ongoing initiative to create job opportunities and improve the local quality of life.”
The program offers guaranteed job placement for graduates through Frontline Academy, the training provider. Holley hopes that it will place Roselle residents on rewarding career paths, as many Frontline Academy graduates are immediately offered employment in the field.
“My team is striving to give Roselle residents viable tools they can use to better themselves, provide for their families, and contribute to the growth of this community,” Holley said. “We continue to identify new opportunities to make Roselle residents more career-ready and focused on taking the next step in their lives.”
Those interested in participating in the program must be Roselle residents. For more information, residents are urged to contact the Roselle First office at 1-908-245-1759.
