CORPORATE TRAINING                     


Customized corporate training provides employers with a practical solution for employee training.  The curriculum, schedule, and location are tailored to the request of an employer, then developed and delivered by professionals with relevant business and industry experience.


Other options:


1) Workforce Development Center (WDC) provides employers with a practical option for training as few as one employee.  Our most popular Corporate Training courses are pre-scheduled for open-enrollment just like our Community Education courses.  It's normally recommended that an employer have at least five employees before considering customized corporate training.  WDC offers employers an efficient solution for training less than five employees.


2) Community Education offers a wide variety of training for individuals through the Professional Development Education Center, Healthcare Education Center, Personal Development Education Center, Industrial Education Center and Computer Education Center.


3) Online Education Center offers thousands of instructor-assisted and self-study courses.


Previously requested customized Corporate Training courses are listed below.  Please note that we are not limited to only these courses.  Please contact us if you may like for us to develop and deliver other courses.

The Industrial Maintenance Education Center is designed specifically for the manufacturing industry by offering a variety of Industrial Maintenance Technician Certificates.

Industrial Maintenance Technician Certificates are an innovative approach designed to introduce employees to industrial maintenance or enhance the skills of experienced industrial maintenance technicians. Programs are tailored for each employer/employee based on employee assessment results and/or their selection of specific industrial maintenance objectives. Each program comprises a series of five hour courses that each begin with a pre-assessment, self-study interactive online training that may be taken from anywhere via the Internet, a post-assessment and conclude with a hands-on lab at the "Southwire Center for Manufacturing Excellence" on the WGTC Carroll Campus.

Leaders will be provided with the knowledge and skills to handle situations and maximize the opportunities for career advancement, therefore promoting job satisfaction and personal satisfaction.
