QUINCY – Quincy College will soon offer classes in downtown Boston for those seeking careers in the life sciences through a new partnership with Jewish Vocational Services.

Jewish Vocational Services provides adult education opportunities and workforce development services in Boston.

The two agencies first connected to train students for careers as certified nursing assistants, and will now expand their partnership to teach students interested in biotechnology, phlebotomy, central sterile processing, substance abuse addiction counseling, medical billing and coding, and being medical assistants.

“Our continuing collaboration with Quincy College is invaluable for our clients,” Kira Khazatsky, COO of Jewish Vocational Services, said in a statement. “As we look to the future, the ability to partner more closely with the college on exciting new educational and workforce development initiatives in health care will translate into so many more opportunities for them.”

The two organizations will “launch an institute of life sciences” as an additional Quincy College instructional location in downtown Boston. Students will take classes, participate in clinical rotations and receive certificates for completing the programs.
