Office of Corporate Training

Established in 1986, as the College's economic development unit, the Corporate Training Division expands workforce skills, retrains employees in new work fields or new technologies, and supports economic development through the provision of educational services to business and industry. The division responds to business and industry requests by designing learner-centered educational offerings that are affordable, flexible, and customer-specific. These work-based educational programs are financed by contract with the employer or through private or public sources.

Types of Training

Training is offered in credit or non-credit forms, or through seminars granting continuing educational units (CEU’s). Work and learning skills assessment and the development of multi-agency learner support systems are some of the comprehensive services available through Corporate Training. Classes are taught at either College or company facilities. The use of work specific tools and equipment is encouraged in training and education projects. Corporate Training also co-manages an advanced CAD/CAM/CAE training facility.
