Lansing CC offers grads a guarantee.
The "Get a Skill, Get a Job" initiative will train people as call center specialists, quality inspectors, computer numerical control machinists and pharmacy technicians.
Participants will pay half the $2,370 to $2,500 cost upfront and the rest in monthly installments after getting jobs.
Participants will sign a contract agreeing to full attendance and completion of assigned class work. Those who show a good-faith effort to find a job but fall will get a refund after one year.
