Interested in starting a new career or advancing in your current job? The University of Central Missouri’s monthly Professional Training and Open House events feature one-on-one sessions with a workforce expert. The next virtual event, scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. Oct. 26, includes the opportunity for individuals to discuss their career goals while also learning about training programs and scholarship availability for qualifying individuals.

Offered in a friendly, convenient Zoom environment, the events are presented on the last Tuesday of each month. For more information and a link to the Zoom session, visit ucmo.edu.

UCM is recognized for its affordable, flexible, accredited workforce programs. Some programs can be completed in as little as six weeks.
