Workforce Development Track
The Workforce Development Track focuses on getting the under and unemployed back to work or on to training paths that will assist them in pursuing a job, as well as on incumbent workers’ training needs and placement of new college and high school graduates. To ensure that workforce training is demand-driven, CEG works closely with businesses, community colleges, and training institutions to identify and address specific training needs so that programs are tailored to available jobs and high-growth industries.
