Guam - The Guam Community College is set to launch the first of 19 community access points on Friday. The service allows residents to access free online training via the Keytrain component of Workkeys, the job assessment and training program offered through GCC designed to assist residents for the workforce. Residents can spend 6 to 10 hours a week working on online skills development for six weeks followed by two hours a week working on a village beautification project.
Once they complete the program, residents can take the test to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate, which serves as proof to employers of specific skills that the potential employee has mastered.
The launch is set for 1pm at the Inarajan Mayor's Office and is a partnership between GCC, the Guam Contractor's Association, the Guam Chamber of Commerce and the Mayors Council of Guam.
