If you’re looking for a new career and you live in or close to Hudson County, check out this excellent opportunity. You can earn a stipend while completing a 50-hour program that spans eight weeks. 

The Water Workforce Development Initiative is a program designed to educate, train, and introduce participants to careers in the water sector. It is currently in its pilot phase. 

A career in the water sector has a meaningful mission: purposeful work to ensure that the public has access to safe and reliable drinking water, as well as properly treated wastewater in order to protect our rivers, streams, and groundwater. Careers in water offer good benefits, a stable career, and excellent training.

Participation in the initiative is free of charge. The sessions will begin in September 2023 and run through November.  The instructors from Hudson County Community College will facilitate the sessions.  Fill out an interest form to receive the latest information on the project. For information, contact Joyce Alvarez, Continuing Education & Workforce Development Coordinator. Office: (201) 360- 5482,
