Corporate Training

Our primary mission is to provide high quality, training to your entire workforce. We will work with you to custom design any course that will help your employees to become more productive and your business more competitive.

New Employee/Pre-Employment Training

New employee training is designed to prepare recently hired employees to enter your workplace armed with the skills they will need to be productive on day one. Pre-employment programs can create talent pools of potential employees that are highly motivated and performance focused.  Both programs will result in fewer turn overs and a faster ROI on your training investment.

Engage Talent and Refocus Resources

Your company’s success depends on motivated and committed employees that play a real part in helping your business meet its goals. Investment in your human resources is a key strategic step to achieving your organization’s objectives. Our training and development programs will help you attract and retain the very best people and help you avoid employee obsolescence and stagnation.

 Mandatory and Industry Required Training

Your business may require training as a matter of policy or be required by state or federal government to provide specific training.  NCCC has a long, successful history in helping companies maintain regulatory compliance. Whether your team needs violence in the workplace training or OSHA training, NCCC can help.

Pre-Collegiate Program

The mission of NCCC’s Pre-Collegiate Program (previously known as Learning Pathways) is to offer college readiness and to prepare our community members for college and/or the achievement of stackable credentials. The Pre-Collegiate program is designed to bridge the gap between the non-credit remedial AND credit bearing and workforce training programs.  

Pre-Collegiate courses are designed to increase the student’s likelihood of success by remedying deficiencies in English, reading and mathematics. The credentials gained in these performance-based programs are the gateway to a better future, better education, better job, better life and a great sense of accomplishment for our participants.

NCCC’s Pre-Collegiate Program is consistent with SUNY’s Non-Credit Remedial Program guidelines.  Each course follows the NCCC Repeat Policy and Attendance Policy. Also noteworthy is the NCCC partnership with Orleans/Niagara BOCES. This partnership allows for pre-collegiate and high school equivalency (TASC) courses to be offered throughout Niagara County.

Our program offers pre and post testing, an informal classroom setting, instruction in all subject areas covered by the TASC and college placement exams, practice tests, basic skills review, some career readiness, contextualized learning and case management.  Attendance is taken daily and our policy is documented. Where applicable, students must be in good standing, in terms of attendance through (at minimum) the census date.

 Students interested in Pre-Collegiate courses are those who:

  • Are returning to college after a break in education
  • Have had a negative experience with high school or previous college attendance
  • Failed one or more of the college entrance tests in mathematics, writing, and reading
  • Failed one or more college foundations courses in mathematics, writing, and reading
  • Want to improve their English language skills in reading, writing, and/or conversation
  • Lack basic computer skills necessary for college success

 Learning opportunities include:

  • Preparation for taking the high school equivalency examination, TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) test, replaces GED
  • English as a Second Language (ESL)
  • Academic Success Skills (personal management skills - time, task, and stress)
