MSJC, RCCD Norco and International Rectifier Corporation partner to provide employee training

September 4, 2013
Mt. San Jacinto College Continuing Education & Workplace Training has partnered with the Riverside Community College District and International Rectifier to assist employees in earning an associate’s degree in electronics.
Contract training is part of an ongoing commitment MSJC’s Continuing Education has made to provide local businesses with well-trained employees. International Rectifier is supportive of the program because employees work various shifts, making it difficult to enter and successfully complete coursework for a degree in electronics technology.  To make it more convenient for these employees, Norco College is providing the certificate/degree core content for the associate’s of science degree in electronics technology and MSJC is providing the necessary general education courses, assessment and preparatory workshops. In addition, MSJC’s Continuing Education is providing local coordination with International Rectifier on the program for the next two to three years.
The start of this program represents the culmination of many months of work on behalf of staff at MSJC, International Rectifier, Riverside Community College District and Norco College, said Rhonda Dixon, coordinator/supervisor of MSJC’s Continuing Education & Workplace Training.
“This is a very exciting program and we are very pleased about this unique opportunity to collaborate and create a program that can serve as a model for the future,” Dixon said. “We greatly admire the commitment of International Rectifier in offering this benefit for employees.”
MSJC’s Continuing Education & Workplace Training offers contract training for local businesses and agencies. It has provided many businesses and agencies, including Eastern Municipal Water District and the Riverside County Office of Education, with the customized training employees and participants need to succeed in their careers. In addition, MSJC’s Continuing Education offers career training certificates, math and writing boot camps, education to earn a GED, English as a Second Language programs and more.
