Do I have the option of taking classes on a full or part-time basis?
Yes. Most courses are available both during the day and in the evening. The majority of our career programs can be completed within two years on a full-time basis; however, many working adults find our programs the perfect way to continue their education on a part-time basis.

Are there jobs available when I finish my studies?
Yes. In Monroe County alone there are hundreds of jobs that go unfilled each year due to the lack of qualified applicants. The number of skilled workers reaching retirement age continues to grow each year, making the skills you will obtain more marketable than at any other time in history. Also, as technology advances, new and greater opportunities continue to expand throughout the world.

Many employers throughout our area support the efforts of their employees attending MCC Career Programs. If you are currently working, simply ask your employer if they offer continuing education benefits.
