STLCC has funding for Missouri STEM Workforce Innovation Networks (MoSTEMWINS) – which is a STEM career pathway program. Since UMSL is located in North County with easy access to MetroLink, several information sessions about the MoSTEMWINs workforce training program will be held in the UMSL Technology & Learning Center. Sessions will include information about 5 different STEM related job programs. People who are interested register and attend sessions to learn about program specifics, complete application documents, take skills-based assessments, and discuss next steps in the intake process. There are no costs for candidates to attend these sessions.
For those interested in becoming Registered Medical Assistants, a special job training and placement program is in the works. STLCC, in partnership with WU Medical School, will conduct the training consisting of these components:
• Pre-employment screening and skills support for participants who are selected to go into a job training program to become registered medical assistants. The selected group would get pre-employment support to learn basic skills and behaviors needed to hold a job in health cares.
• The Medical School commits to hire participants as “Patient Care Trainees” while they train to become registered medical assistants. Participants will work a half-day and go to class the other half-day and receive training pay.
• Focused job training will be housed at Forest Park Community College or somewhere with easy access for participants to get to the Medical Center for clinical experience.
• Successful graduates would move into registered medical assistant titles upon completion. Up to 15 people will fill job openings with wages and benefits at the School of Medicine.
