Representatives from Atlantic Cape Community College’s Admissions and College Recruitment and Continuing Education departments will be available to Showboat Atlantic City employees Monday, July 28, and Wednesday, Aug. 6, to present Atlantic Cape’s credit programs and training opportunities to the 2,100 employees facing unemployment when the casino closes on Aug. 31.

“Atlantic Cape Community College is an integral part of the Atlantic City community, and we stand poised to assist those in need with numerous programs and training opportunities,” said Dr. Peter L. Mora, president. “Our credit options in areas of study like education, criminal justice, communication and aviation, and in-demand training programs in health care; computers, technology and IT certifications; and gaming offer employees the skills needed to succeed, whichever path they choose. Plus, our Academy of Culinary Arts offers both credit and continuing education programs at Mays Landing and Atlantic City campuses.”
