The Eureka Springs Job Skills Training Center is a state-of-the-art facility slated to open in early 2020 at the Eureka Springs Community Center.
It is a collaborative project with the Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, North Arkansas College, local health-care providers and the North Arkansas Partnership for Health Education -- all made possible by the generosity of the Handley Foundation and the American Electric Power Foundation.
In early 2020, we will offer Certified Nursing Assistant training and certification and assistance with job placement. Then in our second phase -- hopefully in time for North Arkansas College's summer 2020 session, we will offer college-credit courses at our real-time teleconference classroom.
Students at the Eureka Springs site will be able to attend and interact with instructors and other students at job skills courses offered by North Arkansas College in Harrison and NAC's Carroll County Center in Berryville as well as other instruction sites.
Additionally a dedicated computer lab will allow Eureka Springs students to participate in on-line courses from a variety of colleges nationwide. To look at on-line courses available, click HERE.
What courses will be offered?
Classes on site will change each semester, however the focus is job skills development. Our first classes will train Certified Nursing Assistants. offer life-skills and help students prepare for the General Educational Development (GED) high school equivalency diploma.
The Eureka Springs Job Skills Learning Center is made possible through a USDA distance learning grant and the generosity of the American Electric Power Foundation and a matching grant from the Handley Foundation as well as tuition assistance from local health care providers. The Resource Council's role is seeking and administering funding.
