Norwalk Community College (NCC) announced it has been selected to participate in a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers for new jobs by 2015.

Through the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, NCC, along with 16 other community colleges across the nation, will offer adults ages 50 and older training to complete a degree or certificate in high-demand occupations.

The program is funded by a $3.2 million grant by the Deerbrook Charitable Trust, based in Maryland.

NCC announced its training will focus on careers such as medical or dental assistants, home health aids and child development associates.
