More Details

OIC of New London County, Incorporated is affiliated with a larger entity known as OIC of America (OICA) which is based out of Philadelphia. The OIC movement began in the 1960’s by 400 ministers who believed that jobs were the key to economic development and the empowerment of individuals. The founders involved in the movement began a campaign to address corporate America and other companies that did not practice Equal Employment Opportunity. Even though the campaign opened up more than 4,400 jobs, many of the individuals seeking employment needed to be educated and trained.


OIC joined the movement by offering certificate programs, comprehensive employment training, and job placement services to low income individuals of New London County. The organization was approved as a 501(c) 3 non-profit entity and opened its doors in 1970.  Since then, OIC has served the community by matching qualified and trained individuals with employers within the State of Connecticut.

OIC hosts short-term employment training programs that provide consumers with the skills that they need to obtain successful employment and re-enter back into the “world of work”. These programs include the following:

  • Certified Nursing Assistant
  • Culinary Arts
  • Business Office/Computer Skills
  • Construction
  • Employability "soft skills" Training
