Randolph Community College is offering two classes that will help students on their way to becoming social workers.

“Phase I: Human Service Exploration — DSS” covers skills and strategies designed to provide employability skills training and career exploration for the role of Income Maintenance Caseworker within Division of Social Service agencies. Students are required to pass the WorkKeys Test before the last day of class. Students can call NC Works to schedule the WorkKeys test.


The course (#68462) is 6-9 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, Feb. 11-April 3 at the Archdale Center. The cost of the class is $125, while the test is $30. Students may receive a waiver for Phase I if they are employed, have received notification of a pending layoff, are working and eligible for Federal Earned Income Tax (FEIT) credit, or are working and earning wages at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.


“Phase II: Income Maintenance Case Worker — NC Fast” is designed to cover a variety of skills associated with the Income Maintenance Caseworker role to determine service eligibility. The specific focus will include proficiency in the utilization of the NCFAST application. Students will enter application information into the NC Fast System and troubleshoot for problems with data entry. Other topics include skills in communication, interviewing, time management, data gathering/compiling, and data analysis. Phase I completion is a prerequisite for Phase II.


Phase II (#68463) is 6-9 p.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, April 15-June 10 at the Archdale Center. The cost is $133.
