“This partnership demonstrates the innovative collaboration taking place in public higher education today. Our collective goal is to provide students in our region with an exceptional education, giving them the skills they need to succeed in their goals,” said Dr. Charles Wall, president of Massasoit Community College.
Workforce data predicts hundreds of thousands of job openings in the field today and in the future. This program gives students valuable credentials and hands-on training in a stable industry, with starting salaries ranging in the $40K-$60K range.
Due to the level of specialized training, this is a highly competitive program with a maximum amount of students allowed to enroll in each cohort cycle. Interested students should contact Massasoit’s transfer coordinator Evan Desatnick at 508-588-9100, x1463 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
