Medical Terminology Training through Workforce Development Grants

The Workforce Development Unit at the Rutgers Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE) has successfully helped hundreds of NJ employers offer training to their staff through NJ Department of Labor (DOL) grants. This medical terminology course can be modified to suit the needs and initiatives of any organization and can help to develop the health care knowledge of workers in a variety of settings! Typically, there are no out of pocket costs to your business except the cost of paying the wages of your employees while they're being trained. This employee training course can also be combined with other course offerings and tailored into a customized program that fulfills your specific corporate training needs.

To receive DOL workforce training grant funding, your company must be NJ-based and free of any state tax liabilities. The qualification process takes about 5 minutes and requires very basic company information such as name, address and FEIN number.
