New Jersey’s local government and court systems offer a multitude of gainful and sustainable careers, including administrators, deputy administrators, and directors. All municipal court leaders must take training and pass tests covering municipal court procedures and management, and RVCC is the only community college in New Jersey offering this specialized training.
