CRC serves Brown County by providing skills

The Brown County Career Resource Center (CRC) serves to provide skills for life and pathways to success.

The CRC is good for anyone who has an educational need but cannot financially pay for what they are needing. The CRC will help financially assist, and help fill out financial aid for universities. The CRC offers free testing, adult education brush up, CPR certification, certified nursing, and certified clinical medical assistant (CCMA), sign language classes, master electrician certification, and they are building more certifications.

In January they will add optometric technician certification in partnership with Ivy Tech. Additionally, the CRC will be adding online certifications that will eventually start coming out one by one over the new year. The new ones to be released will be related to more electrical, advanced manufacturing, and employability skill certifications. Most of the help and assistance you get at the CRC is free, although, some programs may cost but some people may qualify for free certifications or classes. “We do our best to financially support the students as well,” Christy Wrightsman said.

The CRC is an open option for students after high school. They are building a bridge with the highschool and beginning to connect more with the students to ensure that they find a pathway that fits them best for a successful career and future. To sign up for anything through the CRC you can visit the website or go to the CRC during open hours.
