Trained workers. The Center for Workforce Development trains several hundred individuals each year to prepare them for occupations in our community. Training can take place on-site for the employer or at the Center for Workforce Development.
On-the-job-training. The Workforce Investment Act is a federally funded program designed to increase the employment, retention, earnings, and occupational skill attainment of the adult and dislocated worker participants who receive service. Eligible workers are often new entrants to the labor force or those seeking new skills in order to become re-employed after a layoff. Job training opportunities are also available for individuals who are in special need of such training to obtain productive, self-sustaining employment.
