EDISON — Three students in Middlesex County College’s SORA Plus (Security Officer Registration Act) program graduated in December. The program combines security training with customer service and computer skills.
When people visit a company, many times the first person they encounter is the security officer, who acts as a point of reference to the general public as well as adding peace of mind to the staff. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the private security industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the nation, with an expected growth rate of 17 percent by 2016. As a result, the Institute for Management and Technical Development at Middlesex County College partnered with the New Jersey Guard Training Academy to design the program.
The next SORA Plus program is scheduled to start Feb. 19. For more information, contact Astrid Borkowski at the Institute at 1-732-906-4681.
