MODESTO, Calif. - March 5, 2015 - PRLog -- As part of its ongoing efforts in helping unemployed adults obtain the skills they need to get back to work, Community Business College will be offering 2-week classes at no charge to unemployed adults, if they qualify.

The classes are made possible by generous business donations and are designed to help improve the quality of employability of people who are looking for work in Stanislaus County and the surrounding areas. Students receive training, a manual and job coaching all at no charge to them. They also receive free online account access to the local newspaper and are provided with opportunities to expand their education through other programs.

Four class cohorts have been scheduled in 2015. The first start date is Monday, April 6, 2015.
