New Hospitality Training at LAE [Lewiston Adult Education]

Lewiston Adult Education is launching a new 14-week hospitality training program. Designed for adults interested in a career in a restaurant, hotel, ski lodge or health care facility, "Introduction to Hospitality" will provide industry-specific training in the skills that managers are seeking.

Participants in the program will learn how to provide unparalleled customer service, gain hands-on experience in both front-end and behind-the-scenes restaurant and hotel work and learn techniques from hospitality managers themselves as they guest teach classes.

By the end of the program, participants will have a solid understanding of the various branches of the hospitality industry and will have gained the skills to be competitive as an applicant for an entry-level position in a restaurant, hotel or other residential facility.

"Introduction to Hospitality" will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Aug. 31, at Lewiston High School. The registration fee for the course is $145, with a $35 lab fee. For more information, visit www.lewistonadulted.org or call 795-4141.

College & Career Transitions for Adults [Lewiston Adult Education]

Adults who participate in College Transition Programs dramatically improve their chances of success in college. They score higher on pre-tests, which allows them to save money by testing directly into credit-bearing courses. They get accustomed to the habits of attending classes, completing assignments and preparing for exams, which helps them start college strong. They go to college with the confidence they need to succeed.

The College Transition Program and the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program are designed prepare adults to be competitive college applicants and successful college students. Participants in these programs refresh the reading, writing and math skills needed for college-level work, develop the study techniques that have been proven to help adults in college, and participate in interest and skill inventories that will guide them as they choose a major or course of study.

Adults in these programs also have ample support as they get ready to apply to college. They make connections with college faculty and staff, meet with financial aid experts, and get tips from recent College and Career Transitions alums who are now college students.

Transition program alums often talk about the confidence they developed during the program. These individuals are adults who used to feel apprehensive about applying to college, but who, through their hard work and the support of their teachers and classmates, now see college as an exciting new step towards achieving their career goals.

All kinds of different people are using College and Career Transition programs- construction workers, stay-at-home moms, CNA’s, retail workers and more. Some are looking to college as an opportunity to help them move up in their current job, others are looking for new training to launch a different career.

For adults interested in a career in health care, the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program provides all the College Transition Program coursework, plus additional skill and interest assessments specific to the health care field, as well as a science course to prepare participants for college courses in the health sciences. Participants in the Health Care Edition are interested in becoming Registered Nurses, Radiologic Technicians, Lab Technicians, Medical Assistants or other health care professionals.

Due to generous grant funding, the College Transition Program and the Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program are available at no cost to participants through Lewiston Adult Education. Morning, afternoon and evening course schedules are available. The College Transition program begins September 7th. The Career Transitions: Health Care Edition program starts September 2nd. For more information or to apply, visit www.lewistonadulted.org or call 795-4141.
