Itawamba Community College will host an information session on how individuals can earn college credits and certification in HVAC, welding/cutting or Certified Nursing Assistant while working on their high school equivalency credentials at 2 p.m., Oct. 19, at the Belden Center (3200 Adams Farm Rd.).

The free event is part of a commemoration of MiBEST Week, which is Oct. 18-23.

The Mississippi Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training program is a workforce and economic development initiative that moves low-skilled, noncredentialed Mississippians from the economic sidelines into careers earning family-sustaining wages, according to Linzy Patterson, ICC director of adult education.

The session will also cover information on academic success and financial aid.

Patterson said that pathways in addition to HVAC, welding/cutting and CNA will be available soon.
