A new wing of Atlantic City's Atlantic Cape Community College campus will target a local workforce for the hospitality and gaming industry.
The idea to have training kitchens within the city limits has been discussed for a long time, said Richard Perniciaro, who is in charge of operations at the campus. He attended the signing and hoisting of the final steel beam for the new 20,000-square-foot wing in Atlantic City today.
The $10 million new wing, which will be ready for occupancy in Fall 2014, will hold classes for culinary arts, computers, English as a second language and hospitality management. It was funded by matching funds from the county, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and Caesars Entertainment.
