Plus 50 Encore Completion Program

Are you over 50 and facing an uncertain future?  Do you need to either train for a new career or update your skills?  If you’re interested in healthcare or in social services, Brookdale can help.

We know that adult learners face unique challenges. Among them are greater home and financial obligations, difficulty finding study time, and anxiety about returning to a classroom filled with recent high school graduates. Brookdale has a variety of credit and noncredit workforce training and services designed to help you make this transition. Our department offers workshops and one-on-one career counseling. Short-term training and job placement in high-demand occupations is also available. Contact Marian Smith at for information.

Brookdale also has an admissions/recruitment representative dedicated exclusively to adult learners. As part of this Plus 50 program, he will coordinate program services, working collaboratively with student service representatives, continuing education staff, health sciences and human services faculty, personnel at the higher education centers and others.
