Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development


The Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development offers a wide range of programs to thousands of individuals each year. We provide affordable quality career training, education, and community programs. To fulfill our mission, we utilize the following approach:


We provide career training and certificate programs for individuals entering the job market for the first time, seeking to change their professional field, or looking to advance in their current field. Our programs prepare participants for in-demand careers in a variety of sectors such as healthcare, information technology, and education.

Our pre-college programs are designed to prepare individuals to successfully transition into college. We also provide basic education and literacy programs such as English as a Second Language (ESL) and preparation for the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam (formerly known as GED).


We collaborate with businesses,
community organizations, and public and private funders to create programs and provide employment services.


We continually adapt our training programs to changes in the job market and help businesses, employers, and workers respond to changes or advancements in their fields.


We advocate on behalf of the community to support job creation and obtain resources to provide affordable job-training programs.


Our dedicated and multi-lingual staff works tireless to ensure our students receive high-quality instruction and achieve their personal and career goals. We also create customized training programs that are tailored to the needs of our business, employer and community partners.
