Guam Community College recently announced that it’s getting ready to kick off some brand new work-training programs.

In a recent presentation to the Rotary Club of Guam, Guam Community College president Dr. Mary Okada announced the launch of 19 new job-training boot camps within the next few months.

Okada said that drug awareness has also been integrated into the boot camps.

She said that there had been many instances of people who were otherwise qualified being unable to get a job because they failed a drug test.

However, she did say that drug-use standards are ultimately up to employers.

For instance, although marijuana is legal locally, it’s not allowed for federal contracts.
