Metropolitan Career Center (MCC), a workforce development program, and its nonprofit career school, Computer Technology Institute, joined Public Health Management Corporation on July 1, 2011 as members of its affiliate family. MCC educates and trains individuals with limited access to resources to meet the changing needs of the workforce and connects them with employers. It encourages sustainable careers and economic independence by building a supportive learning environment in which students get personalized attention. MCC’s Computer Technology Institute (CTI), an approved and accredited training provider through the Department of Education and one of the few nonprofit secondary career schools in Pennsylvania, offers an associate in specialized technology degree and a diploma in health information technology. Funded largely by public contracts with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, the Department of Public Welfare, and the Pennsylvania Department of Education, as well as sub-grants with PHMC and People’s Emergency Center, MCC also receives a large portion of program funding through individual, foundation and corporate gifts. As part of its affiliate status, MCC and CTI will receive programmatic and administrative support from PHMC.
