PCC Gets Grant For Health Information Technology Training

If you're looking for a job, health information technology may be the way to go.

Pitt Community College just got a 21-million dollar federal grant to train people for those jobs.

Governor Beverly Perdue was at the college Friday to see how the money will be used.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, over the next five years there won't be enough employees to meet the needs of hospitals and physicians as they start adopting electronic health care systems.

PCC was picked to be one of five institutions in the United States to start the national program.

Classes, expected to last six-months, should begin in September.
