Guam - With close to all of the 600 deployed Guam Army National Guard soldiers returned home, the Guam Community College is hard at work preparing a certificate program for the soldiers coming home without jobs.
GCC president Dr. Mary Okada says the college has partnered with the keep your guard up program to provide six different programs from automotive to HVAC to help our troops re-enter the workforce.
"We're currently going through the identification of the programs that the service members are interested in taking a look at the joint service transcripts looking at what courses may be completed so they don't have to take them again," she said. "We're laying out the schedule for them that will probably begin sometime in February through the 90-day period."
Okada says the goal is to provide the unemployed veterans with tools to lead toward employment or start their own business.
