Career Skills Academy

Rockland Community College (RCC) recognizes the high demand to fill “middle skills” jobs – jobs that require more education than a high school diploma, but less than a college degree – in the Hudson Valley region. The Career Skills Academy was created to meet that demand. Career Skills Academy offers programs where students can gain workforce certifications in less than a year. Jobs in these fields have typical starting salaries of $45,000 – $55,000. These programs are designed to provide opportunities to obtain industry-specific certifications and/or to transfer into degree-seeking programs. Class offerings, costs, program length and locations vary based on the program. There are scholarship and grant opportunities for those who qualify.
