PENDLETON --- Job seekers in the tri-county area have until October 31 to enroll in two tuition-free online career building courses that are valued at $599 each.

Tri-County Technical College has partnered with The National Council for Continuing Education and Training (NCCET) and Growth Development Associates (GDA), who are making these tuition-free workforce development courses available for up to one million students, alumni and professionals from colleges and schools across the U.S.

Tuition will be waived (with a small $10 registration fee required) for the two courses, Workplace Communication and Consultative Selling, said Brittany Neely, recruiter and student success coach for Tri-County’s Corporate and Community Education Division.

These courses also are an excellent resource for veterans, those looking for advancement in their current employment situations or developing new career opportunities, said Neely.
