Culinary and health service training for young adults
NEW BRITAIN – The Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC) of New Britain is offering young adults the opportunity to learn free culinary arts and allied health career training this fall.
The center’s Intelligence, Motivated, Patience, Attitude and Career Training, or IMPACT, program offers people ages 18 to 24 the chance to learn job skills during a paid internship.
As part of the program, the participants can learn culinary arts including food preparation certification and a ServSafe credential as well as a bartending credential from Tunxis Community College while studying at OIC in New Britain.
Allied health training is also available for those who would like to become a certified nurse’s aide, emergency medical technician, central sterile processing or learn EKG and pulse oximetry, which require prior CNA or EMT certification.
Since these are paid internships, students will earn while they learn, organizers said. Classes will begin in September.
Anyone who is interested in participating cancall 860-224-7151.
