Message From the Director


Our team is working around the state to provide the services and programs that prepare individuals with education and training to enter the workforce or improve the opportunities to obtain or advance in a career.

Our goal is that when a student or client participates in any of our programs they can be assured that they have the skills for successful employment. We can achieve this when business and industry partner with our high schools, technical institutes, community colleges and rehabilitation services. Industry coordinated, demand-driven programs and industry recognized certifications will better prepare students and clients for employment.

Please contact our office for assistance or for more information. Your input is important as we are constantly striving for better coordination and cooperation between our agency and employers, training programs, and educators.
