Metallica and WCC Rock the Workforce!
Need help gaining the certification required for your next job? Metallica’s foundation, All Within My Hands is partnering with the American Association of Community Colleges and Westchester Community College to give you the support you need!
Certifications allow employers to see where you have gained valuable knowledge, skills and abilities within certain areas or topics. They are often recognized by industry organizations, are often portable (they can be carried with you wherever you go or into whatever job you pursue), and are typically attainable in a relatively short period of time. Certifications are often awarded after completion of some training or curriculum of study and the successful completion of a certification test and/or demonstration of skill attainment. People who hold certifications often have an advantage in the job market over others who may not hold the same or similar certifications.
