A little help from your friends - at Oakton Community College

Interrupting the "Making the Library Your New Year's Resolution" train of thought for a moment here to inform you about some tuition-free job training now being offered by Oakton Community College, 1600 E. Golf Road right here in Des Plaines (there is also a satellite location in Skokie).

You can get
all the details here in PDF format, or just keep reading. I think it's important to give the disclaimer first so you'll have a good sense if this applies to you. The tuition-free training is offered ONLY to residents of Oakton Community College District 535 who have become unemployed from a full-time job since January 1, 2008. Participants must provide a copy of their current Wage Information Sheet. Some fees may apply.

If you're still interested, tuition for up to 12 credit hours is waived for eligible participants in a certificate program for one of the following:
  • A+ Computer Diagnostic Specialist
  • Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Operation and Programming Preparation
  • Green Marketing Preparation
  • Microsoft Project Management Preparation
  • Pharmaceutical Preparation
Most of these certificate programs can be completed in one semester and classes begin the week of February 16, 2009. For pre-screening and additional instruction contact Career Services at 847.635.1735 or

Reboot your career with some help from Oakton Community College. Think of this as another way in which the Library helps you learn, work and play - by keeping you informed of local opportunities for working and learning, even when they don't take place at the Library.
