American College of Technology is holding a seminar to talk about retraining programs, scholarships and grants available to individuals who have been impacted by Energizer layoffs. The seminar will be held Friday January, 24th from 10 a.m. to noon at the Holiday Inn located at 2929 S. Main St., Maryville, Mo.
“We understand the struggle of retraining after a long career in a particular field,” ACOT Chief Operations Officer, Lute Atieh said. “We can help you add updated skills to your resume including training on the latest software.”
ACOT recommends shot-term training for this type of situation. 1-2 year programs either a certificate or associates degree. Some of the courses provided by ACOT include: Computer Programming and Systems Design, Network Administration and Information Security, Business Administration and Information Security, Criminal Justice, and Health Information Technology.
ACOT first started assisting Energizer workers in 2013 shortly after the layoffs were announced. Since the college was founded in 2001 it has helped thousands looking for short-term career retraining, including more than 100 former TWA employees.
“We’ll be able to answer questions about funding, grants, and how to get answers about programs,” Atieh said. “Anything they’re looking for to prepare them for a conversation with their case worker about the programs.”
ACOT classes are all 100% online so students don’t have to travel to attend classes or if they find another job elsewhere they don’t have to drop out to complete their education. Enrollments at ACOT are held 8 times a year.
