CCTC is now “Green Zone” Certified

The goal of Green Zone training is to develop a very visible network of faculty and staff at CCTC to whom Active Duty, Veteran, and dependent family members may go to receive assistance.  These faculty and staff members have voluntarily agreed to attend specialized training to increase their awareness and understanding of the unique needs of the military and military family member.  Through this training they are able to be a source of assistance and resources to these military affiliated students.
