Enrollment Open In Risk Management Program Through TRAC-7

Enrollment is now open in risk management courses offered by the TRAC-7 consortium, with instruction scheduled to start online Oct. 18.

TRAC-7 stands for Technical Retraining to Achieve Credentials, and the consortium involves Garden City Community College, Washburn University, of Topeka, and five additional Kansas community colleges.

The consortium’s Risk Management Program includes instruction and experience applicable to nearly all industries, with learning designed to make job seekers more employable through the ability to reduce risks in their companies, organizations or schools.

“The Risk Management program is designed to prepare individuals for career opportunities in the risk management field, or to develop risk management expertise for already employed professionals,” said Melissa Stevens, risk management coordinator at Highland Community College, the TRAC-7 member school where the program is based.

“Those who complete the program will learn to protect assets and reduce liabilities for their employers and fellow employees,” Stevens added. “The program is offered completely online to accommodate the needs of working professionals and adult students wherever they may be.”

The coordinator may be reached directly at or 785-597-0129.

The TRAC-7 program is coordinated by Washburn and funded by a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant of $19.6 million from the U.S. Department of Labor. Each member college is offering a different program to provide Kansas workers with the academic and industry-recognized credentials and training necessary to meet the need for a skilled workforce. GCCC is launching a Food Safety Program, and information on that opportunity is available from the GCCC Technical Education Division at 620-275-3259.
