Lincoln Educational Services Corporation has announced that the education company will re-open its educational campuses in New Jersey’s different locations, including South Plainfield, Moorestown, Iselin, Mahwah. Union and Paramus.
The company has recently enrolled 3,195 students at its new 6 New Jersey Campuses. The company has further added that about 99% of the total enrolled students are getting careers that the U.S Department of Homeland Security considers essential and critical.
Chief Executive Officer and President of Lincoln, Scott Shaw said, “On March 17th, in accordance with local and federal guidelines, we transitioned our campus’ classroom instruction to remote, distance learning due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“We have worked closely with our regulators and local authorities to develop a re-opening plan with our primary objective being the health and safety of our students and staff. Initially we will be bringing back students in select programs and those nearing graduation who need the hands-on skills training to complete their education. We will gradually transition to full scale operations as is practical and allowed.” Scott Shaw added.
President of the South Plainfield Campus, Jim Kuntz said, “We’re excited to move into summer ready to welcome our students back. New Jersey will need workers with the skill sets students are developing at Lincoln Tech, and it’s inspiring to be a big part of the region’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.”
President of the Paramus Campus, Laurie Pringle said, “Student safety, along with the health and safety of their families, our faculty and staff, is of utmost importance during this time.”
“It is a proud moment for all of us at Lincoln Tech to be able to keep that safety front-of-mind while also beginning training programs that will help bolster our state’s workforce in the near future,” Laurie Pringle further added.
