Registration Under Way for STLCC’s Bridge to STEM-Life Science Program

November 02, 2011

Individuals looking for a new career path in the life sciences are invited to register for St. Louis Community College’s Bridge to STEM-Life Science program.

The one-semester, 16-week program begins Jan. 17. Classes will be taught in the state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories at the Bio-Research & Development Growth (BRDG) Park, 1005 N. Warson Road, across from the Monsanto World Headquarters. In addition to science, math and computer courses and hands-on lab experience, individuals will receive career readiness training, gain job-seeking skills and assistance, and opportunities to network with biotechnology industry professionals.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will earn a life science lab assistant certificate of specialization from STLCC. Graduates are prepared for entry-level positions in a life science laboratory or entry into STLCC’s biotechnology associate degree program.

Participants must have a high school diploma or GED, and must be available to take classes 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Tuition and books are free to those who qualify.
